The Dawn of Quantum Computing — A European Perspective

The Dawn of Quantum Computing — A European Perspective

This IDC Market Perspective discusses the promises that quantum computing seeks to fulfill and how Europe is positioned in the quantum race. It examines the potential applications and use cases for quantum, analyzes the possible implications that quantum computing could have for IT providers across several domains (IT services, hardware, security, and software), and concludes with recommendations for technology end users."Although quantum computing remains an immature technology, the combination of start-ups, research labs, and academia is turning Europe into a vibrant quantum ecosystem, set to remain a central hub for quantum innovation in the years to come," said Francesca Ciarletta, lead analyst, IDC European Infrastructure services, based in London. "While quantum machines will never replace classical computers, there are some applications where quantum shows the most promise. Industries such as financial services, material science, logistics, and pharmaceuticals would be advised to start investigating the potential of quantum to make the most out of the technology as it reaches maturity."
