Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive a notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to for resolution.

Windows 10 Enterprise 64bit for Synergy 7.2.1 Server

According to the compatibility report, Windows 10 Enterprise 32bit is supported as Synergy 7.2.1 Server. However, majority of users are using Windows 10 64bit version. It has been a main stream for three years and required by Company's policy.

We would need to find the alternative of Synergy/Change, if the products does not support the OS.

    According to the info that IBM have supplied to my company on the Synergy/Change roadmap the following is the current target:

    Q3 2019. 32-bit updates to Synergy, Change including Informix Updates and Tivoli RDS updates.

    Q4 2019 explore the feasability of 64 bit support for Server OS, BUT, updates for Windows 20xx OS (2012/2016) as Windows 2008 goes out of support in Dec 2019.

    So it looks like HCL should be supplying updates in the next few months and by the end of the year migration to supported Server OS's, the original target was for 64-bit support by Q4 2019 so I think it will be coming , just delayed.

    Hope this helps.
