Difference between LastModifiedDate and SystemModStamp

Difference between LastModifiedDate and SystemModStamp

LastModifiedDate and SystemModStamp dates both are system fields and that store date and time values for each record.

LastModifiedDate updates automatically whenever a user creates or updates any record. Data can be imported into LastModifiedDate field with any date time value like back-dated value if your business requires preserving original timestamps when migrating data into Salesforce. SystemModStamp is indexed field.

SystemModStamp is strictly read-only. It updated when a record was last modified by a user or by an automated process(salesforce system process). So SystemModStamp field value can be equal to LastModifiedDate or greater.
