Bringing useful quantum computing to the world

IBM Quantum leads the world in quantum computing. This technology is widely expected to solve valuable problems that are unsolvable using any known methods on classical supercomputers.

With the largest quantum computing fleet in the world and Qiskit Runtime — our quantum computing service and programming model — it’s never been easier to execute advanced quantum programs with IBM.

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, resulting in some cases in a 120x speedup over previous methods. First-of-their-kind quantum primitives and middleware enhance its capabilities as we work toward realizing quantum advantage.

Our community of clients and partners comprises 210+ Fortune 500 companies, academic institutions, national labs, and startups — all striving toward this same goal.

Making the world quantum safe

The huge societal benefits of quantum computing come with a challenge: quantum computers will be able to break many of the most widely-used cybersecurity protocols in the world.

Data considered secure today may already be at risk, due to the threat of “harvest now, decrypt later” schemes.

Act now to begin your transformation to quantum-safe cryptography. IBM Quantum Safe offers the technology and support you need for that shift.
