Strategic partners

Quantum computing all over the world

We are committed to fostering a truly global quantum economy. Our iconic IBM Quantum System One is already in strategic partner locations in Germany and Japan, with more on the way in the United States, South Korea, and Quebec, Canada. With our strategic partners, we aim to build national quantum ecosystems, develop workforces, and accelerate R&D on a national and global scale.

Strategic partnerships:

  • Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, Germany
  • University of Tokyo, Japan
  • Cleveland Clinic, United States (in progress)
  • Yonsei University, Korea (in progress)
  • Quebec, Canada (in progress)

Qiskit Runtime

It’s never been easier to build and scale quantum programs

We built Qiskit Runtime for the era of useful quantum computing, allowing you to easily create powerful algorithms and run them at scale. Qiskit Runtime delivers a tremendous performance increase for non-trivial workloads, delivering in some cases a 120X speedup over previous methods.

The new more powerful Qiskit Runtime includes primitives – powerful core functions that drive performance and make programming easier.
