WMI Databases store different providers' products or entities' basic meta-information, such as the definition and implementation of the provider model, the type of provider and the hosting model. Although only tested and accepted providers are registered within the WMI Database, after the creation of a basic model the product’s template and code snippets are created so that they can be accessed through software application and system services.
