Partnerships and acquisition to migrate to cloud is expected to increase the market of cloud based software. For instance, in December 2017, Planet DDS, a cloud based software provider in the U.S., announced partnership with Advanced Dental Management (ADM). Through this partnership, ADM gained a global view of practice operations, centralized reporting, and anywhere, anytime access to information through web browser. Denticon, a Planet DDS software, is a flexible, powerful, cloud-based practice management software popular across the U.S.
