The variety of organizations involved in quantum computing demonstrates the vast reach this technology will have once commercialized at scale At Quantum.Tech, attendees heard from a diverse group of speakers from established companies directly involved in the quantum computing space, such as IBM (NYSE: IBM) and Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT), as well as startups, such as […]

Key findings from TBR’s Quantum Computing Market Landscape

While quantum computing continues to make strides, market limitations and technology exploitation are ongoing concerns Quantum computing vendors continue to make major strides in the technology. Decoherence and qubit quality remain ongoing challenges for which vendors continue to research enterprise-grade workarounds. However, there are challenges facing the quantum computing market landscape that even the smartest […]

Teetering on the edge of economic advantage

Insights from TBR’s 2Q19 Quantum Computing Market Landscape The quantum computing market will evolve from research-centric to commercial use cases in the next two to five years as the technology reaches economic advantage. This will be achieved one algorithm at a time, and once it begins, the developments will be swift as customers are likely […]

HPE buys Cray: Is this the definition of insanity?

We know Moore’s law drives consolidation in the industry. What we do not know, however, is if any two hardware-centric vendors can come together and build a business accretive to the top line. Michael Blumenthal tried this strategy by combining Burroughs and Sperry to create Unisys, and that certainly did not work. More recently Dell […]

Commoditization economics and emerging workloads disrupt the data center landscape

Commoditization mitigation strategies require business model shifts and an ever-watchful eye on exascale cloud entrants Volume or value? Toward the end of 2018 in the data center market, two distinct vendor strategies emerged: Vendors began either increasing sales volume or selling lower-volume but higher-value solutions. TBR believes that in 1H19, now that vendors have determined […]

IBM makes major strides in quantum with Volume and AI

IBM Quantum Volume creates a new way to assess a quantum computer’s capabilities as a whole system, rather than just based on its number of qubits. IBM unveils research into the intersection between quantum computing and machine learning. IBM, ever present in the development of cutting-edge technology, is a leader in the quantum computing space […]
