Is Business Ready to Make the Quantum Leap?

We are just a few years away from a world where a new form of computing will make the currently impossible, possible.

Imagine the potential when a life sciences company has the computing power at its fingertips to develop new drugs or treatments in the space of days rather than years, by solving complex multiple-variable research questions in a single keystroke.

Or consider how transportation companies could slash billions of Dollars of cost inefficiencies from their supply chains by being able to run algorithms that can identify the best possible routes for their fleets to take across multiple locations.

This is the promise of Quantum Computing, which by delivering previously unimaginable leaps forward in processing power, could open the door to new possibilities in transforming existing business operations and creating new growth opportunities, that are well out of the reach of classical computing.

Quantum Computing has become a huge area of interest for businesses, with multinationals in different industries such as Airbus, BASF, Boeing and RBS making major investments in Quantum research projects or partnerships in recent months. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has stated that Quantum Computing will be one of the technologies that will “shape the world” in the coming years.

But can businesses wait for Quantum to deliver on that promise?

Organizations need to move at speed in laying the foundations for a more agile business model to support their increasingly digital-centric strategies. As they transform to meet changing customer demands and an evolving competitive landscape, they are having to make significant changes to the way that they run critical processes, from the way they design new products and services, through to the flow of their supply chain, and their approach to risk management.
