- What you need to know
- Quantum computers use the properties of quantum physics to perform computations.
- The technology is extremely difficult to build and fully-fledged, fault-tolerant commercial computers are not expected for at least a decade. However, within the next five to seven years, intermediate quantum computers that can offer a quantum advantage over classical computers are likely to become available.
- Sector leaders are creating Quantum-as-a-Service (QaaS) offerings on specialist cloud-based platforms, where prospective customers and hobbyists can experiment with quantum devices and start developing quantum code.
Understand what quantum computing is and its potential impact across industries
Quantum computing is of vital strategic importance: its security implications have global superpowers scrambling. Our quantum computing value chain comprises five segments: infrastructure, hardware platform, software, applications, and services.
The company (or government) that owns the first at-scale quantum computer will be powerful indeed.
