New Study: 69% of Global Enterprise Executives Have Adopted or Plan to Adopt Quantum Computing in the Near Term
BOSTON, Jan. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quantum computing has moved from the fringes to the core of the digital transformation agenda, according to a new global study, “The First Annual Report on Enterprise Quantum Computing Adoption,” commissioned by Zapata Computing, Inc, a leading enterprise quantum software company.
Quantum computing has become a priority, as 74% agree that those who fail to adopt quantum computing will fall behind. Those that wish to avoid falling behind are running out of time: among enterprises that have begun building quantum capabilities, 41% expect to achieve a competitive advantage — i.e., a lead over peers in their industry — within the next two years, while the top 12% of adopters expect to achieve some competitive advantage within one year — or already have.
“Today, more organizations are realizing that quantum computing is the next frontier in their data analytics capabilities, and if they don’t want to lag behind, they need to start building the infrastructure, applications, and workforce for quantum computing today,” said Christopher Savoie, CEO of Zapata. “We’re already seeing how the leaders in quantum adoption are separating themselves from the rest of the pack. They are starting to build solutions that strategically leverage today’s quantum devices within mostly classical applications. Those that are the furthest ahead aren’t just investing in quantum to avoid losing — they’re playing to win.”
Below are some of the report’s key findings:
Machine Learning and Data Analytics Are the Top Quantum Use Cases
28% of Global Quantum Computing Budgets Top $1 Million
Organizations Need Quantum Vendors, But Are Concerned About Getting Locked-In
Complexity Is the Greatest Barrier to Quantum Adoption
The United States Leads in Quantum Adoption
Quantum Adoption Is Highest in the Transportation Industry
Methodology: The survey was conducted in partnership with Wakefield Research and is based on responses from 300 leaders (CIOs, CTOs and other VP-level and above executives) at large global enterprises with estimated 2021 revenues of over USD $250 million, and estimated computing budgets over $1M.
