Copy Data Management (CDM) is a relatively new IT category of solutions designed to manage the creation, use, distribution, retention, and clean-up of copies of production data or “copy data.”  “Copy data” is all data not currently being used in production. This can be a snapshot, backup, or replica of a version made for various IT or business functions—data recovery, Dev-Test, analytics, and so on.
