The Intel-led Desktop Management Taskforce (DMTF) consortium has put its Common Information Model specification out to review and comment. The document is intended to provide the industry with a technical specification for building products that can manage operating systems and applications running on Intel-based PCs and is expected to be finalised this summer.
DMTF also hopes to have a second specification out in a similar timeframe, which will enable suppliers to Web-enable their products. This document looks at managing PC configurations, hardware and software inventories, Internet-based applications management and how PCs and servers interact with Internet resources.
