The companies have agreed to collaborate to help accelerate the usage of quantum computing to the business community globally. Accenture is a professional services company with over 569,000 employees and clients in over 120 countries. They provide services in strategy and consulting, interactive, technology and operations services. In particular, they may be able to help clients wishing to get involved with quantum technology by helping them formulate strategies, identify appropriate problems, develop solutions, and deploy the solutions within the client’s company. And with their large base of existing clients, they should be able to leverage these contacts and bring additional new business for IonQ’s ion trapped based quantum computers. More information on this collaboration is available in a news release issued by the companies and available here.
