We must keep up with rapidly changing technologies or our products and services could become less competitive.

 

The complexity and uncertainty regarding the development of new technologies affect our business greatly, as does the loss of market share through competition, or the extent and timing of market acceptance of innovative products and technology. We are also potentially affected by:

 

 

Longer sales cycles for our solutions due to the nature of that technology as an enterprise-wide solution;

 

 

The introduction of competent, competitive products or technologies by other companies;

 

 

Changes in the consumer and/or business information industries and markets;

 

 

The ability to protect our proprietary information and technology or to obtain necessary licenses on commercially reasonable terms; and

 

 

The impact of changing legislative, judicial, accounting, regulatory, cultural and consumer environments in the geographies where our products and services are deployed.

 

Maintaining technological competitiveness in our data products, processing functionality, software systems and services is key to our continued success. Our ability to continually improve our current processes and to develop and introduce new products and services is essential in order to maintain our competitive position and meet the increasingly sophisticated requirements of our clients. If we fail to do so, we could lose clients to current or future competitors, which could result in decreased revenues, net income and earnings per share.
