Is there a significant difference between transforms and functions? Could one replace the other?

A transform is a special type of function that takes one or more input records as parameters and returns a newly-created output record. You can use functions for multiple purposes, but an activity that creates a new record requires a transform to be provided in order to know how the new record should be initialized.
