#FeatureFriday: What is WMI?

Welcome to “Feature Friday”, a series of (typically short) videos which explain a feature, function, or technique.

WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) is, as the name implies, a foundational protocol for Microsoft Windows – based environments. Despite this, it is not well understood in terms of what it can do and how you make it do it.

In this video Chris O’Brien and I take a look at the basics of WMI and what it looks like in its most basic form.
