Spectrum Symphony not compliant with C++17

We are migrating Banks C++ code to make it compliant with C++17 version and have noticed that IBM Spectrum Symphony is not compliant with C++17 (realeased 6 years ago). We are already receiving syntaxis warnings indicating that certain headers hace been deprecated since C++11, and now in version C++17 they have eliminated the syntaxis (for example ( We would like to have systems compliant with C++17, as current systems cannot be migrated from C++14 version as certain syntaxis in no longer permitted.

C++17 was released in 2017 and is now used in probably at least 42-50% of your client base, so this will benefit most of your clients ( Being Symphony primarily a C++ product, it would be good to be compliant with more recent code versions.

Thank you
