More Workflow and BPM Trends using Google

Every now and then I do a little playing around with Google Trends to find out how the BPM industry is tracking.  I typed in the following search terms:


Business Process Management




software (used software just to get a base line) 

If looked at only by themselves workflow, BPM, and Business Process Management would seem to be contracting. Google does not create these charts against total searches but as a percentage of total searches. If we use the term software as a baseline it would seem that these terms are relatively stable. The interest in the BPEL and BPMN languages seems to be increasing and fairly dramatically. I guess this may be expected due to the relative youthfulness of these terms as compared with the others. Additionally BPM may not be a very valid search term as many people might be searching on “Beats per minute”
