Business leaders want ongoing revenue streams from an army of subscribers. But, as companies that plunged into recurring business models are realizing, subscriptions are more than just transactions that recur. Subscription success can be illusive. Too often, subscription models don’t generate the expected high, ongoing revenue streams.
While the shift from disk to digital offers tremendous potential opportunities, it also presents a host
of new challenges for gaming companies. As the online channel grows increasingly complex and the pace
of innovation accelerates, many companies struggle to keep up. Not only are there websites and storefronts
to manage, but also real-time gaming servers, large software downloads, and live-streamed competitions and
events. Games are transforming from fixed, boxed products to dynamic, ongoing services – with frequently
updated content, in-game micro-transactions, virtual goods and social interactions. Mobile adds another
dimension to the trend, as consumers increasingly look to play on smart phones and tablets – or on multiple

The explosive growth of eCommerce has focused attention on security concerns associated with online payment transactions. Cardholders worry about the safety of online transactions while card issuers are concerned about balancing the risks and costs of payment fraud with a loss of revenue caused by transaction abandonment. The 3-D Secure protocol allows payment card issuers to reduce fraud in payment transactions by verifying cardholder identity during Card Not Present (CNP) transactions. Before a transaction is authorized, a cardholder can be challenged to enter a password, answer a question, or use some other form of authentication credential. This interruption in the transaction often causes legitimate customers to abandon the purchase resulting in loss of revenue for the issuer. The challenge is how to reduce fraud without impacting the user purchase experience.
