COM (Component Object Model) is Microsoft's object-oriented programming model that defines how objects interact within a single application or between applications.

In COM, client software accesses an object through a pointer to an interface (a related set of function call methods) on objects.

Both OLE and ActiveX are based on COM. IBM's version of COM is called SOM.
