Strategic Planning for Quantum Computing: An Industry Guide

December 28, 2017 | State of the Market Report

Quantum computing (QC) has been explored in physics labs and government research programs for decades, but now a wave of corporate projects, venture-backed startups, and open-access interfaces are contributing to a growing sense that the time for QC is imminent. Many industries will be affected, starting of course with computing itself. Today’s chips, networks, sensors, cybersecurity, and software all face quantum competitors that could wipe them away. Applications in chemicals, medicine, finance, and logistics will also shift the balance of power towards those who best grasp the new technology. The threats and opportunities of "quantum supremacy" won’t happen all at once, and they won’t affect industries in identical ways, but they will likely happen. This report gives examples and guidelines to help companies plan for this change,
