(TSX VENTURE: AHI) ("Agility Health" or the "Company"), a leading provider of physical rehabilitation and software services that benefit patients, healthcare providers and employers, has learned that summary judgment has been issued in favor of the financial advisory firm in the March 7, 2013 lawsuit filed by the advisory firm against one of the Company's subsidiaries, Agility Health, LLC, as described in the Company's August 28, 2013 Information Circular. The advisory firm is seeking a commission worth approximately US$900,000, together with its attorneys' fees. The lower court is expected to rule on the amount of damages and enter a judgment against Agility Health, LLC sometime during the next four to eight months.

The standard of review at the Court of Appeals will be de novo, with no deference given to the lower court's ruling. The Company's management has been advised by legal counsel that the appeals process will likely take more than a year to complete.

Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
