You’ve heard that quantum computing could represent a step change from current, classical computing. Well, you don’t have to wait. Annealing quantum computers have already demonstrated that, for certain workloads, they’re magnitudes faster than classical computers alone, and will soon be capable of previously unimaginable calculations. Even better, they work synergistically with classical computers, so quantum-hybrid applications allow for the best of both worlds.
But first, let’s discuss what can be done with quantum computing in the enterprise today. To understand where quantum is delivering value today and why, you need to distinguish between the two leading quantum computing models: gate model and quantum annealing.
