Having systems of record is a widely accepted architectural pattern used to provide clear delineation of responsibilities and guidance to end-to-end solution architectures.
It is an architectural pattern of it's time, suited to an IT landscape of large monolithic applications and was the dominant strategy since the 90s across almost all corporate IT. If this it your IT strategy, you have good governance and patterns for change and an integration architecture which is for keeping these monoliths in-sync then go forth and prosper - you will have mature IT and a reasonable cadence of change.
More likely however, is that significant data is created in what is considered systems of record, half migrated new systems of record plus micro-services and analytic / machine learning flows so the misalignment of systems of record to the business view has become more obvious and material.
There is not a good semantic fit between an applications view of data and the business view of data so lets stop pretending.
