WMI(Windows Management Instrumemtation)

Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is the infrastructure for management data and operations on Windows-based operating systems. You can write WMI scripts or applications to automate administrative tasks on remote computers but WMI also supplies management data to other parts of the operating system and products, for example System Center Operations Manager, formerly Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM), or Windows Remote Management (WinRM).

Power Shell is one of the Microsoft breakthrough,It is not just another scripting language instead it works with .NET objects. And it does this by using Cmdlets.
A Windows PowerShell Cmdlet (or Command-let) is the means by which .NET objects can be accessed from the command line. A Cmdlet can easily be recognized from the fact that its name will consist of two elements: a verb and a noun.
