Cisco software development fails again. Nine months to prepare for Apple OS X Mavericks and the AnyConnect client doesn’t work. As one person in the support ‘discussion’ says:
Why is AnyConnect always behind? There was plenty of time for Cisco to have this prepared ahead of time. I have had issues before when OS X was upgraded. It’s unacceptable from such a large company.
Seriously, that’s why they have developer releases, so that developers can get their software ready ahead of time. What is Cisco doing during this time?
I can’t think of an excuse for this. Why does Cisco regularly fail to deliver software on time ? Why are there so many bugs in the early versions ? When compared to thousands for small developers who were well prepared for the change, Cisco looks like amateurs who didn’t know that Mavericks was about to ship.
If Cisco wants to be regarded as a “software” company then all of their software need to be excellent, not just some of it.
Update: Juniper has the same problem
Thanks to Kaj Niemi @kajtzu for pointing out that Juniper has problems as well. Must be a big company problem ?
