Short for Wired for Management, an open-industry specification developed by Intel that lets IT professionals automate client-PC management over a network.
WfM technology is used in client-side hardware (such as circuitry, memory, power supply and NIC ) and management software applications (such as LDCM ). IT managers will use the software to interact with PCs through their (PCs) hardware. From there, managers can monitor, update, and configure PCs. As long as they have the software — let’s say on their laptops — they can access PCs from anywhere, even through a dial-upconnection.
WfM biggest asset comes when managers have to access mobile computers from remote locations. For many critical tasks, users only need to dial-up through an analog modem, and the management application will take care of the rest.
