Workflow Trends

I have just had a quick look at http://www.google.com/trends and thought I would share the results and my analysis.

First I typed in: workflow

It seems the volume is down from 2004 but more than 2005

The top 5 normalized countries are:

India, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, South Africa

Next I typed in: workflows

This was not tracked in 2004.  2005 and 2006 have approximately the same number of searches.

The top 5 normalized countries are:

India, Australia, Austria, Germany, United States

Next I typed in: Business Process Management

This was not tracked in 2004.  2005 and 2006 have approximately the same number of searches.

The top 5 normalized countries are:

India, Pakistan, South Africa, Malaysia, Singapore

For all searches new reference volumn increased year on year.

So what does this mean.  Well at this point I can only speculate.  One thing seems to be that a high percentage of people in India are searching for workflow/BPM the other is that in different countries some tend to use the word workflow more often then they use the words BPM and vice versa.
