TBR’s first Quantum Computing Market Landscape focuses on multiple facets of the quantum computing market, exploring the vendor landscape of a variety of competing hardware vendors with differing quantum theories, as well as software services and security vendors playing in the quantum computing space. Emerging customer sentiments, as well as recent alliances, emerging use cases and economic disruption are all themes explored within this first iteration of the report. A previous TBR special report by Analyst Stephanie Long looked at the “economic advantage” of quantum computing, and our May Digital Transformation Insights Report: Emerging Technology put the consulting and services around quantum in the context of digital transformation. The new market landscape builds on all TBR’s research and analysis to date.
