MuleSoft IT platform to power NSW Department's ChildStory project
The New South Wales Department of Family and Community Services has chosen MuleSoft's Anypoint Platform to support statewide delivery of the ChildStory IT platform. The platform replaces many IT systems with a single, integrated platform for apps, data and critical community services for children in need.
ChildStory 'places the child at the centre of their story', as the system networks family, carers, case workers and service providers who will collaborate to keep children safe.
“MuleSoft is the heart and lungs of ChildStory, connecting the disparate systems, on-premises and in the cloud, to enable FACS to fulfill their crucial role to children and families. It’s a privilege for MuleSoft to be working with such a dedicated team drawn from the NSW Department of Family and Community Service and from our industry partners. As a team, our total focus is on delivering the outcomes. Outcomes which aren’t just measured in financial terms but also in terms of improved safety of vulnerable children and their families,” says Jonathan Stern, regional vice president of Australia and New Zealand, MuleSoft.

MuleSoft's Anypoint Platform will provide a modular, agile strategy, API connectivity and infrastructure for cloud and on-premises access to apps, devices and devices that the company says will speed up delivery of critical services.
“ChildStory is a great opportunity to provide children, families, caseworkers and our partners with tools that help us to work together and to gather the stories of children who are vulnerable and need child protection services. To deliver ChildStory we have chosen technology partners who have demonstrated that they understood the challenge and had the right technology to support child protection in NSW,” says Lisa Alonso Love, ChildStory program director.
MuleSoft also says its Anypoint Platform's use of hybrid cloud technology will make it easier to connect to multiple government systems and access real-time information for rapid case management and resolution. This will be particularly important for mobile case workers, police, education and health departments.
Other ChildStory partners include CloudFirst, TigerSpike, CloudSense, Conga and Squiz.
