IDC's Worldwide Quantum Computing Taxonomy, 2022

IDC's Worldwide Quantum Computing Taxonomy, 2022

This IDC study provides an overview of and definitions for IDC's Quantum Computing Trends and Strategies syndicated research. It captures the definitions that IDC uses to identify and segment quantum computing infrastructure deployments, consumption models, and services. Further, this taxonomy delineates between strict (quantum only) and not-so-strict (hybrid or quantum-classical) computing systems, platforms and technologies, and associated services. Because the quantum computing market is driven by investments in quantum computing, this study includes a segmentation that details entities that fund quantum computing initiatives and entities that accept such investments for developing products and services."The quantum computing industry is beginning to flourish as quantum computing, and quantum-inspired vendors push the limits of today's technology to achieve near-term quantum advantage for a host of quantum computing use cases," said Heather West, senior research analyst, IDC's Infrastructure Systems, Platforms, and Technologies Group. "While many view the industry as a race to unveiling the first universal fault-tolerant machine, we believe that the variety of approaches used to advance the current quantum computing technology will result in a diverse set of technologies suitable for either application-specific and general-purpose quantum computation."
