Ever since it was introduced in Windows NT, people have come to know WMI and use it. Although WMI is very powerful, it is also a very slow technology. With Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8, CIM has been introduced, the successor of WMI—a much faster technology compared to WMI. In this session, Jeff Wouters will explore the CIM architecture, explain why CIM is faster than WMI and examine multiple WMI vs. CIM examples. This presentation will combine theory with live demos, providing a great learning experience for attendees.
Attendees will also learn:
- The architecture of CIM
- Why CIM is faster than WMI
- How to use CIM with PowerShell
