From Zero to Global: Cloud Deployment in Under Two Years

Thomas Fitze

Software Architect, SW&UX

Dentsply Sirona is well-known in the dental industry for its broad portfolio of hardware and software. From CAD/CAM solutions to medical device software used in diagnostics, dentists and laboratories use our products daily to help their patients.
However, with dentists seeking more comprehensive support for their workflows, we faced a challenge in shifting our focus from incremental product improvements to holistic solutions. In response, we introduced DS Core, a new online platform for digital dentistry. In less than two years, we transformed from developing on-premise products to deploying a global cloud platform.
In this talk, we take you on a journey through the last two years from a software R&D perspective. We’ll discuss where we started, the challenges we faced and overcame (and some that still need solving), and where we ended up. Join us to learn how we adapted to reach our goal of developing a platform that is changing the way dentists work.
