I know a few of RAD personnel, also had dealings with them in a few projects. Customers, (we are a supplier too in a joint effort) were sold on capabilities, dates, and costs that could not be obtained but were used to sink the hook on the deals with Fortune 500 companies - great spin for business press. A lot of resource has since been burned with nothing to show from it for the customer to actually take delivery on.Engineers knew the reality before the deal was cast, but marketing & sales were driven to meet business plans that necessitated too optimistic a schedule based upon, at that time mere vapor ware. In this case it was a joint marketing mascarade, not of RADs sole doing. But I have seen evidence I suspect is elsewhere within their announcements too. RADs has the talent in their technical ranks IF they apply it to obtainable stretch product development that does in fact generate sales dollars from products delivered not just news releases.
