What’s Your Quantum Computing Strategy?

IBM’s Customers Show Us Why It’s Important To Build A Quantum Computing Strategy Today

Key points…

+  Quantum is exciting because it forces people to move beyond the old notions of how to accomplish various computing tasks. Putting aside the old allows breakthrough thinking, which is essential for companies to take their digital journey to get to the next level. Like any other IT project, you need a quantum computing champion to explore, experiment, and evangelized the technology within your organization.

Sutor noted that quantum computing is not just as simple as manufacturing qubit. He stated there’s also science, experimental physics and engineering to refine. For example, scientists must improve quantum circuits to achieve quantum advantage. Sutor expects that in three to five years, we will see early instances of quantum advantage. However, this vision of quantum advantage requires hardware, software, and algorithms systems, to all come together.

+  Quantum computing isn’t something you can pick up in a weekend or at the grocery store. It’s an emerging technology that is arguably five or more years away from widespread commercial use. However, an organization should begin its quantum computing education today and start to define projects that can leverage cloud-resident quantum technology.

+  Organizations that do this have the opportunity to create breakthroughs in areas such as material science and artificial intelligence. Many are already on this educational journey: at the recent Global Summer School, 4000 people attended workshops and labs to learn about IBM’s open source Qiskit development platform.
