Computer scientists are quite clear in their belief that the internet is coming of age. They have a firm belief that the enormous amounts of data floating around in the internet will unchain a management revolution of uncanny proportions. This revolution is referred to as ‘Big Data’. Yet,
to date, the potential benefit of this revolution is scantily investigated for safety and risk
management of the railways. This work reports about an investigation how Big Data can contribute
to safety systems for the GB railways. The experience that is gained also sheds light on Big Data as a driver for change in the railway industry as a whole.
