Historically a lot of software has used incrementing numbers to represent the identifier of a particular piece of data. They can be auto-generated by many data stores, they are easy to read, efficient to store and naturally time ordered.

Modern software architectures also trend to decouple infrastructure layer and move ID generation logic to the domain core.
