VIENNA, Va., Aug. 22, 2013

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.

Bill Cull, Vice President Public Sector at Splunk adds, "We are delighted to
align with a customer-focused solution provider like Spear. Their leaders are
IT veterans in the federal industry that know how to architect and deliver
results. Splunk is pleased to see their dedicated investments in resources and
personnel aimed toward solving challenges that our Federal CIO customers face
today."
