Get to know WMI with PowerShell
Goverlan collaborator, PowerShell MVP, and all around awesome Adam Bertram (http://www.adamtheautomator.com) put together this brief on Goverlan WMIX. WMIX is a free tool used to explore WMI and create reports, queries, and scripts. He does a great job of explaining it all, so I am just here to leave you with some links.

Adam finishes the paper with this note on Goverlan WMIX (spoiler alert):
“WMIX is a great tool to learn and explore WMI. PowerShell is a great tool for management and automation. Leveraging each tool’s strengths will allow you to get up to speed on WMI much quicker and to create robust, efficient PowerShell scripts that you can use in your environment today.”
