Operation Inflection Point: Exploiting the Quantum Ecosystem to Become Quantum Ready
This IDC Perspective provides insights into quantum computing–as-a-service (QCaaS) offerings that organizations can leverage to ease their quantum computing adoption process. These offerings include quantum computing infrastructure-as-a-service (QC IaaS) offerings purchased directly from quantum hardware vendors, quantum computing platform-as-a-service (QC PaaS) offerings available from select cloud service providers, and quantum computing software-as-a-service (QC SaaS) offerings from independent software vendors. Each QCaaS offering includes resources that can help organizations on their quantum computing journey.
"Quantum computing is anticipated to be an industry disruptor. Many organizations — from many industries — are already experimenting with its potential today to gain a competitive advantage tomorrow," said Heather West, senior research analyst, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms, and Technology at IDC. "Organizations interested in quantum computing but deterred from investing in this technology today will find themselves at a disadvantage in the future. This does not have to be the case. QCaaS offerings can help take the mystery out of quantum computing."
