as promised: A click-through demo for the new MDG 7.0 function "Governance of Business Partner". As written in the blog from Markus Kuppe: "Create new Business Partner with MDG-BP. With MDG 7.0 "there are out-of-the-box governance processes for the generic SAP Business Partner. That means in addition to Supplier and Customer that were provided earlier, companies can now also govern the central data of different types of SAP Business Partners".
