This chapter is an introduction to IT transformation of systems for safety management, risk analysis and/or RAMS analysis. The objective is to provide the reader with an overview of the formidable task of IT transformations in general and in particular for safety management on the GB railways. The chapter can only scratch the surface of this transformation since it deals with selected elements of decades of research and development in the computer sciences. The authors believe that trying to describe the particulars of the transformation is out of scope for this book because it involves so many intricate peculiarities of computer science that it is infeasible to explain within the scope of this chapter.
