Shared Open Source code* of web interfaces provides flexibility for you to integrate with your own systems and web sites.

* Windows Management Instrumentation

As the product  name suggests, the WMImonitor agent heavily utilises the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) which is the Microsoft implementation of Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM). This is an industry initiative to develop a standard technology for accessing management information in an enterprise environment. WMI uses the Common Information Model (CIM) industry standard to represent systems, applications, networks, devices, and other managed components. CIM is developed and maintained by the Distributed Management Task Force. The integration and use of WMI ensures fast and efficient, non intrusive data collection techniques that do not burden local or network resources.

* Shared Open Source Code Definition

Shared Open Source code allows viewing and modification of web pages used in the application subject to the End User License agreement (EULA). Source code is only made available to license customers after purchase. It is not free software and does not transfer rights of ownership. This provides peace of mind that changes in requirements can be met over time and removes the need to hold ESCRO agreements for software security.

Standish Group found that open source has resulted in savings of about $60 billion per year to consumers.
