Quantum computing promises to offer advantages to many industries, and hardware providers are working to bring existing machines to a level where they can apply theoretical algorithms and achieve business-relevant quantum advantage.

While hardware continues to improve exponentially and full-stack quantum computers are getting closer to real-life application, there are solutions, such as Quantum-Inspired Optimization (QIO), that can deliver some expected benefits today. QIO algorithms can be applied to business challenges and formulated in a way that allows them to be efficiently solved using both special purpose quantum devices and powerful classical hardware. This allows for your organization to realize business value today, while also helping your teams gain experience with the methodologies and adopt a quantum mindset.

KPMG professionals are working with Microsoft Azure Quantum to explore near-term applications of quantum computing and quantum-inspired applications that can link your business needs to technology capabilities.

Azure Quantum, the world’s first full-stack, public cloud ecosystem for quantum solutions, accelerates research and development by providing access to diverse quantum software and hardware solutions and optimization tools, with the peace of mind that your data is secure in the trusted Azure public cloud.

KPMG has a dedicated team of professionals focused on quantum-related technologies, developing solution blueprints built on Azure Quantum that can address common industry optimization problems. We can work with your organization to explore how to apply emerging capabilities to real business problems today, while also helping to prepare for future possibilities.
