System of Record

What is System of Record?


A ‘System of Record’ is an information storage system in which a particular database is considered as the original or the primary ‘system of record’. That particular database is considered as the primary copy or even the original data in cases where the database has been developed by collecting data from various sources.


A ‘system of record’ or SOR is used when data integrity and validity is of utmost importance. There might be several variations of the data as multiple employees or systems might manipulate it or even process it to provide other results.


Similarly, a SOR is required in cases where multiple systems might be processing the same information. In such cases, there might be backtracking required if there is some error and hence, having a dedicated SOR helps in understanding the original data.
