Just wanted to confirm with the experts here.

If I understand correctly system of records(SORS) is where the data element first appears and is stored.  Operational database or OLTP is where data you manage dynamic data in real time where insert, delete , update can be done in real time.
 
Now my question is , isn't System of Record and OLTP basically the same? I am bit confused with SORs which is where data first appears but then OLTP system also houses data whenever any inserts, updates, deletes are perfomed.
