Distributed Management Task Force, Inc.

DMTF enables more effective management of IT systems worldwide.

DMI Desktop Management Interface

DMI generates a standard framework for managing and tracking components in a desktop pc, notebook or server. DMI was the first desktop management standard.

The DMI Home Page is a repository of all DMI-related information from the specification to tools to support to the Product Registry of DMI-certified products. Due to the rapid advancement of DMTF technologies, such as CIM, DMTF defined an end of life  process for its Desktop Management Interface (DMI), which concluded March 31, 2005.
