SpiceWorx successfully delivered a study on the state of e-Learning in the Philippines to Center of the International Cooperation for Computerization (CICC) in Japan. SpiceWorx conducted extensive interviews with various stockholders of e-learning in the Philippines including government agencies, academe and private sectors. The study covered major E-Learning initiatives by the Philippine government, policies concerning e-learning, e-learning case studies in universities/colleges in the Philippines as well as other training institutions and many other e-learning related projects being undertaken in the Philippines.

Since August 2004, SpiceWorx has been working hand in hand with
JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization) in publishing periodic reports on Philippines' IT and IT enabled services industry targeting Japanese readers to raise awareness among them about Philippines as an offshore outsourcing destination. Reports are available from JETRO websites in Japanese and English.

SpiceWorx has successfully completed a survey on IT Human Resource Needs for  JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency)  and University of the Philippines IT Training Center (UP-ITTC) . The survey was composed on both online questionnaire and face to face interview. Online questionnaire during November 16 to December 17, 2007 gathered responses from 66 IT service companies (mostly software development) and face to face interviews were conducted with 49 of them during November 27, 2007 to January 21, 2008. The survey result is expected to contribute to updating and
upgrading UP-ITTC's training curriculum and workshop contents to align them with the latest industry needs.
