A quantum revolution is upon us. While the technology is yet to be widely adopted across businesses today, this will begin to change in the next several years with the increasing prevalence of enterprise applications.
Quantum computing will help enable organizations to tackle problems that the finest classical computers of today are incapable of. Possible applications are diverse and will impact across industries. Notable examples include solving complex optimization problems, artificial intelligence (AI), quantum-encrypted communications, financial trading and risk profiling, smart retail and smart manufacturing and logistics. In the short-term, these applications can result in new services and partners; however, in five to ten years, quantum computing applications may completely transform business models.
It is therefore highly recommended that leaders with ambitions of flourishing in the future begin to equip their technology toolkits with quantum computing for an innovation that is set to change the world and business as we know it. Accenture’s partnerships with the world’s leading quantum cloud vendors and research institutes means we are well equipped to advise clients on this coming wave of disruption.
