WBEM

(Web-Based Enterprise Management) An umbrella term for using Internet technologies to manage systems and networks throughout the enterprise. Both browsers and applications can be used to access the information that is made available in formats such as HTML and XML. Built into Windows 98 and 2000, WBEM uses the Common Information Model (CIM) as the database for information about computer systems and network devices. Originally an initiative of Microsoft, Intel and others, WBEM was passed over to the DMTF in 1998. See CIM and JMAPI.

While standards are important, WBEM and JMAPI are still in the evolutionary stages (they are drafts, not standards).
Nevertheless the list of what's not available under WISE is extensive and these are just some of the most important: Active Directory, ActiveX Data Objects, COM/DCOM, COM+, OLE, COMGDI (post NT 4.0), Printing (post NT 4.0), ODBC, OLE DB, DirectX, Security (NTLM, Kerberos, Public Key Infrastructure, Directory Services and Distributed Security), Multimedia (post NT 4.0), Active Server Pages (ASP), NetDDE Remote Access Service (RAS), Telephony API, Windows Networking License Service API, and WBEM.
The DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) originally developed CIM (Common Information Model) and WBEM (Web-Based Enterprise Management) standards.
