Demystifying Quantum Computing: Road Ahead for CommercializationWhether building out quantum technology internally, partnering with other groups that are perfecting the process, or investing in quantum computing through M&A, organizations have several options to consider. However, quantum computers are programmed and coded using “qubits,” which can represent both zeros and ones simultaneously as data units, allowing quantum computers to be exponentially faster. From optimizing power grids, enhancing predictive environmental modeling, or finding lower-emission sources of energy through chemical simulations, quantum computers can play a critical role in more efficient energy use. Quantum computing efforts must map back to a critical business or technology need, not just for the short term, but also the long term as quantum computing matures. To understand what makes quantum computing unique, we must first look at classical computing, the likes of which make up our current digital landscape. Moving Forward with Quantum Computing Investments in quantum computing will soon explode, offering organizations new ways to compute and ultimately fuel new discoveries and innovations. In the coming years, quantum computers will likely far exceed the performance of today’s supercomputers and as such, will open entirely new opportunities for organizations.
