Qu&Co comments on this publication:
This report by The Boston Consulting Group, a strategy consulting firm, targets business executives and other people looking for a broader market overview on quantum computing. The authors (Philipp Gerbert et al.) provide some insight in where the technology currently stands, who is who in the emerging ecosystem, and the potentially interesting applications. The report also analyzes some of the leading indicators of investments, patents, and publications, which countries and entities are most active and the status and prospects for the main categories of quantum hardware technologies. Additionally, the report aims to provide a simple framework for understanding quantum algorithms and assessing their applicability and potential. Finally, the authors provide their view of what can be expected in the next five to ten years, and what corporates should be doing, or getting ready for, in response.
