Chris Butler is an HR data and analytics expert and consequently the founder and CEO of One Model. Chris started his career working with HR data many years ago at Infohrm, the first HR analytics software company. With hundreds of HR data warehouse deployments under the belt and the successful acquisition of Infohrm by SuccessFactors, and subsequently SAP, Chris could see that no vendor was able to scratch the itch HR departments had to build an analytics function that would first enable them and then grow with them as they matured their capabilities. One Model was born to deliver it's customers with a complete HR data strategy that would complement and work independently of the HR technology the customer currently chooses to use. With a focus on understanding the construction, and behaviors of each system One Model is able to deliver analytics as a by product of good data management and allow customers to effectively switch transactional technologies without skipping a beat (or losing a data point).
Chris believes One Model is ultimately an HR insurance policy providing value from trapped transactional data that the vendor can't deliver on and to allow the customer to regain choice in the technologies and vendors they use by returning control and ownership of the managed data set back to the customer. Recently Chris' team have made incredible strides in the development and release of One AI, an Automated Machine Learning solution built specifically for the HR practitioner to easily use and extensible for the HR data scientist to gain enormous productivity.
