Demystifying Quantum Computing: Road Ahead for Commercialization

Demystifying Quantum Computing Road Ahead for Commercialization
In the coming years, quantum computers will likely far exceed the performance of today's supercomputers and as such, will open entirely new opportunities for organizations.The pandemic has underscored the need for CIOs to invest in emerging technologies to both weather this storm and to build a foundation for recovery and future growth. This is evident by tech M&A activity that improved dramatically in the second half of 2020 -- hinting at optimism for the industry, as well as increased and potentially record-breaking levels of movement in the near future.

Is Quantum Computing Startup IonQ a Buy Ahead of Its SPAC Merger?

data analytics scaled
Special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) dMY Technology Group III (NYSE:DMYI) recently announced that it will be merging with quantum computing start-up IonQ. A number of quantum computing deals and developments have been revealed over the last couple of years that indicate that this futuristic tech could be nearing broader-based commercialization. IonQ is one of the few pure-plays in a space dominated by technology giants. It's an interesting company to keep an eye on at the very least, but investors should stay patient ahead of its public debut. Is a revolution in computing brewing? Traditional computers store and manipulate bits of data in a binary state, recording it in strings of 1s and 0s. Quantum computing introduces quantum mechanics into the equation. At the atomic and subatomic level, particles can simultaneously exist in more than one...
