BPM Certification Remains #1 Search Topic

by David McCoy  |  May 26, 2011  |  Submit a Comment

On my blog, “BPM Certification” is still the #1 search term at 9.3% of all searches. If you add in the variants (BPM Certificate, BPM certifications, Business Process Management certification), you get a total of 13.2% of the searches devoted to this topic.

What does this tell us:

  1. Y’all appear to be interested in having something to hang on the wall.
  2. OMG and ABPMP should be pleased to see this interest.
  3. All the other search terms were related to the BPMS Magic Quadrants, our BPM Hype Cycles, BPMS, David McCoy (my ego thanks you!) and…. “Doomsday Clock”

Oddly, “Doomsday Clock” is the #2 most searched single term. Is there irony in that? Sure, but I’m not going there.

Certification – it’s a good thing. Doomsday… that was so last weekend.
