What is the use case for "integration_ids"?

Our Canvas integration to our SIS was built a few years ago. We mapped students and courses by their SIS_id. I've noticed that since then there are several objects that now have an additional field for "integration_id". Courses, sections, enrollments, user pseudonyms, assignments all have this new ID.

What is the story there? What are these for? Why weren't SIS_ids good enough?
