VIENNA, Va., Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Spear, Inc. (Spear), a leading provider of IT solutions and management consulting services to the federal government, is proud to announce its recent investment in an ever-growing data analytics practice. With market conditions changing and demands increasing, it is essential to identify ways for federal agencies and decision makers to attain and assess more information in an efficient, cost-effective manner. Spear is thrilled to announce it signed a reseller agreement with Splunk Inc., the leading software platform for real-time operational intelligence, to offer Splunk ® software to meet these increasing requirements.
With government mandates and increasing compliance needs, federal agencies are required to track massive amounts of data and utilize this information effectively without an increased budget. New open data policies require agencies to generate information in uniform, machine-readable formats. Agencies must then manipulate this data to produce actionable insights to increase productivity, meet compliance mandates and make informed decisions. Spear consultants and engineers are now able to offer Splunk ® Enterprise, a powerful, agile and easy to use solution to these demands, allowing federal decision makers to access and utilize machine-generated data while being restricted by ever-tightening budget requirements.
"Spear's investments in key hires, training, and other resources related to our relationship with Splunk will continue to enhance the partnership and provide increased benefit to our Federal customers. Coupling Splunk's top of the line offerings with Spear's unmatched level of service and innovation, we'll be well equipped to handle the ever-changing mandates and requirements of the Federal marketplace," said Gino Antonelli, Co-Founder and COO of Spear.
