The Open Management Infrastructure stack (OMI, formerly known as NanoWBEM[2]) is a free and open-source Common Information Model (CIM) management server sponsored by The Open Group and made available under the Apache License 2.0.[3][4]


OMI was contributed to The Open Group by Microsoft on June 28, 2012 with the goal "to remove all obstacles that stand in the way of implementing standards-based management so that every device in the world can be managed in a clear, consistent, coherent way and to nurture [and] spur a rich ecosystem of standards-based management products."[5] The source code is hosted on GitHub.
