That is why companies - even as they prepare themselves
for the arrival of next-generation technologies such as
quantum computing - need to double down on their
current digital transformation initiatives.
The COVID-19 pandemic has heightened awareness of the
importance of digital reinvention, with it finally becoming
a board-level priority in most companies. But making
digital transformation a board-level priority isn't enough.
Companies need to kick their digital transformation journey
into overdrive.
Accelerating the pace will help enterprises ensure they are
moving fast enough to keep up with rivals and resilient
enough to thrive in today's rapidly changing business
environment. But it will also provide them with the digital
capabilities necessary to capitalize on next-generation
technologies - will make them sufficiently future-ready to
harness the awesome power of quantum computing.
Full-fledged quantum computing is not likely to come on
line for another five to ten years. But as the cover article
in this issue makes clear, the time to begin investing in
quantum computing - becoming familiar with the concept,
preparing your workforce, identifying specific ways your
business could harness its tremendous computing power -
is now. It should be an element of your long-term " digital "
strategy because the stakes are too high to be caught
unprepared when quantum computing begins to gain
commercial traction.
Note, however, that quantum computing will augment
rather than replace digital technology. In most cases,
quantum computers will work together with digital
machines to process previously unimaginable amounts of
data or solve currently insoluble problems.
