Planning service Yes
How the planning service works We help buyers plan how they will implement cloud hosting or software services by helping them ‘do the right things’ and ‘do the things right’. To ‘do the right things’ we help clients develop winning strategies by understanding how they can benefit from the available technologies and approaches, and helping them make informed choices about what to do, when, and how. To ‘do the things right’ we help clients execute their strategies by helping them shaping, source, mobilizing, and deliver programmes and projects of business and technology change.
Planning service works with specific services No


Training service provided Yes
How the training service works All of our G-Cloud services include increasing the skills and knowledge of the client personnel we work with through knowledge transfer and coaching. The nature and extent of this varies according to client circumstances, needs and aspirations, but we always strive to enhance our clients own capabilities as a result of our work. We can also conduct training needs analysis, and design and deliver formal training programmes, both directly and by ‘train the trainer’.
Training is tied to specific services No

Setup and migration

Setup and migration
Setup or migration service available Yes
How the setup or migration service works We help buyers migrate to the cloud or between cloud services by working closely with them to define an appropriate migration strategy, developing a detailed migration plan in collaboration with the cloud services provider(s), and ensuring all parties work in collaboration to execute and verify the migration. We ensure that the migration approach and plan minimize the risk of business or service disruption, and that it represents the most cost-effective approach. As part of supporting the procurement of cloud-based services, we ensure that clients have clear exit plans including understanding how they will be able to migrate between relevant services and service providers, and with appropriate commercial and contractual arrangements to allow this.
Setup or migration service is for specific cloud services No

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing
Quality assurance and performance testing service Yes
How the quality assurance and performance testing works We help buyers perform quality assurance on cloud, digital, mobile and social technology projects and services by ensuring that all services and deliverables have clearly defined criteria by which their completeness and quality can be assessed, by conducting objective assessments against those criteria, and by ensuring that relevant stakeholders are engaged in assurance activities and sign-off reviews. Where rework is identified to be required, we ensure that the project team and/or supplier has a clear remediation plan, and monitor its execution.

Support levels Alchemmy provides professional services to help organisations choose and use cloud, digital, mobile and social technologies, and to plan and deliver the organisational, behavioural, process and technology change necessary to achieve sustainable business benefit from these technologies. As such, we do not provide support services for cloud and related services (user support, helpdesk etc.) as organisations will source these from the providers of those services. However, we do provide quality assurance and full support for all the work we do, to ensure that clients gain the full benefit from it. To do this we assign an Account Manager to each client to be responsible for delivery, and an independent Quality Assurance Director ensure quality and full client satisfaction. There is no additional charge for quality assurance and support – it’s part of how we work, and is included within our quoted pricing.
