The CIM Intermediate Query Language (CimIQL) is an intermediate language designed to simplify the process of querying CIM providers.

CimIQL currently supports the standard Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) protocol stack, but others, such as Web Services-Management (WS-MAN), may be added in the future. The query language syntax borrows from elements of Microsoft's WMI query language and UNIX's wbemcli command. The CimIQL library is a pure Java implementation.

Note: CimIQL is pronounced "simicle".
