OUR MARKET IS SUBJECT TO RAPID TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE AND TO COMPETE WE MUST
CONTINUALLY ENHANCE OUR SYSTEMS TO COMPLY WITH EVOLVING STANDARDS.
To remain competitive, we must continue to enhance and improve the
responsiveness, functionality and features of our services and the underlying
network infrastructure. If we are unable to adapt to changing market conditions,
client requirements or emerging industry standards, our business could be
adversely affected. The Internet and e-commerce are characterized by rapid
technological change, changes in user requirements and preferences, frequent new
product and service introductions embodying new technologies and the emergence
of new industry standards and practices that could render our technology and
systems obsolete. Our success will depend, in part, on our ability to both
internally develop and license leading technologies to enhance our existing
services and develop new services. We must continue to address the increasingly
sophisticated and varied needs of our clients and respond to technological
advances and emerging industry standards and practices on a cost-effective and
timely basis. The development of proprietary technology involves significant
technical and business risks. We may fail to develop new technologies
effectively or to adapt our proprietary technology and systems to client
requirements or emerging industry standards.
