The quantum race is underway. Governments and private investors all around the world are pouring billions into quantum R&D. Satellite-based quantum key distribution for encryption is laying the groundwork for a potential quantum security-based global communication network. IBM, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and others are investing heavily in large-scale hardware and software. Nobody is quite there yet.
Even so, business leaders should consider developing strategies to address three main areas: 1.) planning for quantum security, 2.) identifying use cases for quantum computing, and 3.) thinking through responsible design.
By planning responsibly, while also embracing future uncertainty, businesses can improve their odds of being ready for the quantum future.
