The process of onboarding quantum computing technology
How to prepare your organisation for quantum computing?
We created a 4-step framework meant to help our clients onboard quantum computing technology. It’s a business-driven implementation approach where we adjust the whole process to the requirements of your organisation and industry. During the process, we jointly identify the areas that are ready for quantum computing technology to generate both short- and long-term benefits.
The 4 stages of adoption are:
- Awareness — we’ll help you understand quantum computing technology and its potential. During these conversations, we will cover the implications for your business and the entire sector you operate in. The sessions will contain multiple examples of quantum technology use cases.
- Discovery — together, we’ll define a list of topics as potential opportunities for quantum development. We will then divide the topics into two categories — a) use cases that can be solved with already available quantum computers, b) ideas that need to wait a while longer until the technology advances. As a result, you’ll receive a custom quantum adoption roadmap and business case preparation support.
- Proof of Concept — we’ll create and verify prototypes of the selected solutions from the discovery phase, using real data to ensure their quality and performance.
- Production — lastly, we’ll also integrate the quantum computing solution with your IT ecosystem. It will become available for a wider group of users and be compliant with production-scale standards.
Things you should know about quantum computing
The problems that are most suitable for quantum computing are those which require high computing power or accurate simulation capabilities. This means that quantum technology can help you with quantum systems simulation, new drug development, protein folding, quantum chemistry and similar.
The second-best type of applications that can be run on quantum computers are those which solve optimisation and combinatorial topics. These problems exist in every organisation — noteworthy examples include scheduling, logistics or resource optimisation, credit scoring, risk analysis, portfolio optimisation, inventory routing, Monte Carlo simulations, and more.
The last two topics are security and machine learning areas. Here, quantum computing can enhance already existing algorithms to improve the speed of calculations and the quality of results. This technology will define new standards, especially in security.
It already is. You can find multiple real-life use cases of quantum computing across industries. The challenge right now is to find a suitable area that can be improved and supported with the existing quantum hardware — the easiest answers are optimisation and combinatorial areas.
For a more sophisticated approach, a good strategy is to try to divide a topic into smaller parts. Run those smaller parts on existing devices, check the quality of results, and verify that your approach is scalable. Quantum technology is developing rapidly, and the growth is visible every year.
Yes. Quantum solutions can be a part of your existing systems and applications. You can work with this technology in a similar way to how you use third-party solutions.
There is a common belief that quantum computing is extremely expensive. This isn’t entirely true. While quantum computers themselves are very costly, you don’t need to buy one to leverage this technology in your business. Instead, you can rent a quantum computer to run your calculations, paying only for what you actually use. For example, the cost of a single execution of a quantum algorithm on a QPU can be as low as $0.00019. This is possible thanks to various cloud-based service models. You can also buy access to quantum computers directly from quantum vendors and cloud providers like Microsoft, AWS, or Google.
Quantum technologies can be integrated into a data science pipeline to construct sophisticated models for finding patterns and insights in data. They are especially powerful for computational tasks involving evaluation and optimisation. The integration of quantum technologies can significantly improve efficiency and performance in business operations, aiding in rapid analysis of a vast array of scenarios for informed decision-making. Consequently, quantum technologies can provide solutions and strategies that might be inaccessible to traditional computing methodologies.
Quantum computing solutions can significantly contribute to making business travel more sustainable by optimising multiple parameters such as cost, travel time, and environmental impact (for example, CO2 emissions). By taking into account these factors, quantum computing algorithms can provide optimal solutions that balance efficiency, cost, and environmental concerns. This allows businesses to make more informed, sustainable choices when planning travel and reduces their carbon footprint.
Quantum computing can be applied to optimise logistics and scheduling across various industries by leveraging its ability to solve complex optimisation problems efficiently. For instance, in retail, it can optimise supply chain logistics, considering factors like transport costs, delivery time, and stock availability. In manufacturing, it can enhance production line efficiencies by optimising processes to reduce waste and downtime. In healthcare, it can optimise shift scheduling and usage of medical equipment, providing maximum service with minimal resources. By considering multiple factors simultaneously, quantum computing offers a powerful tool for solving complex logistical and scheduling challenges.
Even though we are still in the NISQ era and the development of fault-tolerant quantum computers is yet to be achieved, businesses can already draw value from the existing quantum technology. Quantum computers, even in their current state, can drastically reduce the time needed to solve complex problems, provide a wider range of solutions, and discover solutions previously inaccessible to classical methods. By understanding and leveraging the potential of NISQ devices, businesses can stay ahead in this rapidly evolving technological landscape. It is important for businesses to stay informed about the latest advancements in quantum technology to make the most of it.
As the pace of quantum technology development accelerates, businesses should consider its potential applications in their operations. According to recent surveys, a significant percentage of industry professionals believe that quantum computing will play a critical role in various sectors in the next few years. Quantum computing can solve problems previously deemed insurmountable, offering faster and more qualitative results. However, the technology won't replace classical computation; instead, it will enhance it, particularly in areas such as optimization, modelling, and quantum machine learning.
