This IDC Perspective provides an overview of quantum computing technologies currently under development and available to organizations interested in beginning their quantum computing journey. These quantum computing technologies include superconducting, photonic, trapped ion, and spin-based quantum computers, as well as the quantum and digital annealers. Also included in this IDC Perspective is a brief introduction to quantum computing infrastructure as a service (QC IaaS) and quantum computing platform as a service (QC PaaS).

"Quantum computing is a future industry and infrastructure disruptor for organizations looking to solve complex problems, which result in a business value. Many organizations are already experimenting with its potential," said Heather West, senior research analyst, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms, and Technologies at IDC.
