CIF files are published by experimental groups to convert the structural data in a standardized way. The are uploaded to databases like CSD database.
For simulation codes, the atomic information is necessary _input_ for the simulations, because the positions of all the atoms need to be specified.
Programs like 'Openbabel' can convert between many formats.
