IonQ, Accenture to accelerate quantum computing into the enterprise

College Park-based quantum computing firm IonQ and global professional services company Accenture are collaborating to accelerate quantum computing business experimentation in organizations globally and across industries.

Accenture’s experience and skills in quantum, coupled with its ability to design and create customized industry solutions tailored to IonQ’s quantum computing technology, will help more companies innovate and become quantum ready, company officials said.

The exploration of quantum in business is growing rapidly, driven by the anticipated business value and competitive advantage it promises to deliver. Quantum computing’s vast potential is persistent across every industry and realized by solving challenges that were previously unsolvable. Together, Accenture and IonQ will help clients explore and experiment with quantum solutions designed to address mission-critical business problems.

IonQ’s 11-qubit system is the only quantum computer available via the cloud on AWS’ Amazon Braket, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure, and its 32-qubit system is one of the world’s most powerful quantum computers. The company plans to develop modular quantum computers small enough to be networked together in 2023, which could help pave the way for broad quantum advantage by 2025. In September 2020, the company’ two co-founders, Jungsang Kim and Chris Monroe, were named to the White House’s National Quantum Initiative Advisory Committee (NQIAC).
