Windows 10 Image Creation
Streamline your image creation process with benchmark testing
Benchmark testing is a time- and cost-efficient way to replace manual testing during Windows 10 image creation and OS deployment. With the help of benchmark testing, you can run automated performance testing of applications and Windows 10 images for quality assurance.
By running benchmark tests on PCs installed with a Windows 10 image of your choice, you get a better understanding of the PC performance in different real-life work task scenarios. Based on the benchmark scores, you can compare the performance impact of different applications and Windows 10 images on a PC.

Standardize Windows 10 image creation process for quality control
Gone are the days when new OS versions were released every few years. With the launch of Windows as a service, there are major feature updates every six months. With changes coming more often, you are more likely to run into issues with software, drivers, and hardware.
With the frequent delivery of new features, OS deployment has changed from a one-off project to a process involving continuous OS performance testing. It is not an easy task to ensure the compatibility of Windows 10 images with all supported platforms in terms of productivity, connectivity, manageability, and security.
With the help of UL’s benchmark testing software, you can take control and streamline your OS image creation process to create Windows 10 images according to your requirements for performance and usability.
Automate manual testing for faster Windows 10 image creation
In order to create a Windows 10 image deployable on PCs, some opt for manual performance testing in the form of manual Windows 10 image evaluation or pilot projects using a decentralized approach.
Manual performance evaluation slows down image creation and OS deployment. It is time consuming and difficult to collect, analyze, and compare different forms of performance data. The creation of a golden image is estimated to require at least two employees and 48 to 124 working hours to complete, while each successive image takes another 17 to 40 hours to build. Manual OS performance evaluation also increases the potential risk of OS deployment since the evaluation method is not quantifiable nor streamlined.
Decentralized pilot projects consist of application testing with stakeholders from different business functions. IT provides test scenarios for testing systems running the new OS, while business representatives and application owners take responsibility of the application testing. Not only can a pilot project take days or even weeks for the OS deployment and testing team to complete, it also disrupts end users’ productivity as they need to devote time away from their own responsibilities for usability testing and reporting.
Automate the manual testing in your Windows 10 image creation process with UL’s benchmark testing software. Save hours of repetitive work and manual efforts so you can meet your deadlines and focus on other IT tasks.
