Tymly has been designed by West Midlands Fire Service to help meet the challenges facing today’s public sector. We combine open source software and open standards to offer a fresh alternative for teams delivering digital services.
Tymly uses Finite State Machines to undertake any task, large or small. These state machines can be created, updated and cancelled via a secure REST API - this allows external systems to integrate with the digital services offered via Tymly using simple and well proven web protocols. Conversely, state machines can invoke external REST APIs to request and manipulate data via third party services too.
In Tymly, data models are defined inside blueprints using the open JSON Schema format. This allows for a No-SQL-style experience when interacting with data. However, under the bonnet, Tymly will transparently use these schema definitions to conjure more traditional relational tables in PostgreSQL. This in-turn brings benefits in terms of querying, data integrity and tooling. The best of both worlds!
