It is not yet clear to you whether quantum computing will be relevant for you
We work with you to develop a procedure to assess the potential in your situation.
Identification of user industry use cases
As a result of the diverse problems of companies from a wide range of industries, we look at a wide range of applications from practice, prepare them to be solved with quantum computers, and develop the first prototypes. This facilitates the identification of requirements for available QC technologies and expectations for future developments, thus promoting close exchanges between research and application. At the same time, this also serves as an early transfer of knowledge to the user companies.
Where can we pick you up?
Quantum computers can solve tasks that are completely impossible with conventional computers or can do so immensely faster and for more complex problems. But when does such a quantum advantage arise for the business community? That is arguably the most common question companies ask themselves today.
Based on the maturity model we developed, we divide companies into six QC levels. Knowing your QC level allows you to calculate more specifically how you can reach the next QC level, the next one after that, etc. In the end, you have the answer for the timing of your quantum advantage so that you can start immediately planning how to prepare for this era.
QC-Level 0: Thinking.
You have already recognized the topic as an exciting one for your company.
You know that the economic benefits of QC are currently seen in the areas of optimization, simulation, AI, etc. QC will not replace our IT landscape, but co-processors will supplement in complex cases.
You have collected complex potential QC cases and have compiled a long list of potential use cases for your company – from experience, 25–75.
You have evaluated the potential use cases on the basis of criteria, perhaps based on the QAR-Lab’s 4-criteria catalog: very hard/important/appropriate/early cases are of interest. Your weighting resulted in a shortlist with a favorite.
You implemented your favorite use case on several quantum computers. At the QAR-Lab, we recommend at least quantum annealing and quantum gate model, if possible, also variants such as digital annealing and various providers for comparison.
You have assessed the runtimes and quality of the solution, know your need for qubits, and have extrapolated when the hardware you need will be available. From this, you derive when your top application achieves a quantum advantage.
