Technology adoption

Written by Michiel Dorjee on . Posted in Exact Synergy

Nowadays the speed of new technologies becoming available for us is tremendously high. Together with this rapidity new functionalities and possibilities are being introduced. It’s quite an effort to catch up and follow in the same pace as these new products are being launched. To give our (early adopter) customers a peek inside, I have listed the new products from the Microsoft “train” which we will be supporting.

Exact is currently working on making our products Exact Globe Next (‘with extended functionality’) and Exact Synergy Enterprise ready to support the newest Microsoft platforms: Windows Server 2012, Windows 8, Internet Explorer 10 and Office 2013.

Below you see the list of new technologies which will be supported in each product:

Exact Globe Next

  • Windows Server 2012
  • Windows 8
  • Internet Explorer 10 (only for Exact Globe Next ‘with extended functionality’)
  • Office 2013

Exact Synergy Enterprise

Somewhere next half year we expect to support all the above technologies in the specific product. For the exact release dates please keep a close eye on this blog.

      @Ronald, as that train recently left the station, we are working hard on it to catch up, so that we are on the same track, as soon as possible.

        @ExactUser, we are almost finished with the support of Windows 8. Depending on the risk and efforts we will patch it to our latest commercial product update, so that our customers don’t have to wait until the next one becomes general available. Microsoft has planned general availability release for the first quarter of MS Office 2013. Our next product updates will then also support this version.

      We will support Windows 8 with our next product update (251 for Exact Synergy Enterprise and 406 for Exact Globe Next).

    Today i found out that Synergy Office Integration will not work if you run IE9 64 bit. If you start IE9 32 bit, it works fine.
    Since you mentioned upcoming support for IE10, will this be 32 bit only or 64 bit as well in relation to SOI?

      Hi Ronald, this is indeed a valid point. We will check how this can be addressed in the current scopes for our next product update. Depending on the efforts and risks we will make a patch available or not.

        Hi Sunil. Can you update us on when version 251 of the SOI will be available? Is it still planned for May? Maybe a specific date?
