IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Quantum Computing Systems 2023 Vendor Assessment
This IDC study provides an assessment of worldwide quantum computing hardware vendors through the IDC MarketScape model.
"Quantum computing is a nascent technology, and the quantum computing market is made up of numerous companies developing quantum computing hardware. However, quantum computing hardware is only useful if there are tools and resources that enable end users to experiment with the technology," said Heather West, research manager, Quantum Computing. "QCaaS offerings provide end users access to the hardware, software, quantum specialists, and other tools and resources needed to experiment with quantum, but not all offerings include the same features. Customers should consider partnering with quantum hardware vendors that provide the quantum hardware, software, tools, resources, and expertise that match both their quantum needs and their stage in their quantum journey."
