IDC Market Glance: Copy Data Management, 2Q18

By: Phil GoodwinResearch Director, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group

On-line Presentation


This IDC Market Glance defines copy data as any copy of a primary (production) file or database used for secondary purposes. We estimate that copy data will cost IT organizations $55.63 billion in 2020. This is an annual cost to IT for the hardware and software needed to store and manage copy data. Copy data management products can significantly reduce this cost by creating virtual, rather than physical, copies of the data. This IDC Market Glance explains copy data management, differentiates copy data management from mere management of data copies, and lists desirable product functionality. We also list vendors and how their solutions can be categorized and compared.
