See here:

I’ve spent the greater part of the last five years collecting and analyzing a massive amount of data on this issue.

So I think that "I" would mean almost the exact same thing, but I think that "I've" puts more emphasis on the ongoingness of the spending action.

The thing is that "I" would also mean that the spending action was ongoing, so is there really any difference at all?

I think that I'll go with "I've", but I really want to know what (if any!) difference there is so that I can adjudicate between these shades of meaning going forward!

Thanks so much!
