Global digital services and IT consulting provider Infosys has announced a strategic partnership with Amazon Web Services to explore quantum computing capabilities and use cases on AWS. Amazon Braket will be used by Infosys to investigate and develop numerous quantum computing use cases as part of Infosys Cobalt cloud services.
As a quantum computing service, Amazon Braket lets scientists and developers get up to speed quickly and expedite their research. Infosys will use Amazon Braket’s circuit simulators as well as quantum hardware to create, test, and evaluate quantum applications.
As quantum technology advances, this will allow scientists and engineers to experiment with and analyze more difficult computing issues. To assist them investigate how quantum computing may aid them in the future, companies will get access to use cases for fast testing. They can also evaluate new ideas and create adoption strategies to help them stay ahead of the competition. Infosys’s usage of Amazon Braket seeks to prepare organizations for the impact that quantum computers will have on the business world in the future.
“Infosys continues to be at the forefront of exploring and bringing new technologies to clients,” said Ravi Kumar S, President at Infosys. “Through our use of AWS in this space, we are bringing together the power of Amazon Braket and Infosys Cobalt to help enterprises build quantum computing capabilities and use cases to accelerate their cloud-powered transformation. We are exploring a variety of use cases from the logistics, finance, energy, and telecom sectors that can help clients evaluate future benefits and value that quantum computing could bring to their business. Enterprises can look forward to solving their various complex computational challenges with Infosys Cobalt and Amazon Braket.”
The Infosys Center for Emerging Technology Solutions (iCETS), which focuses on the incubation of next-generation services and offerings, is using Amazon Braket to develop quantum computing use cases in vehicle route optimization, fraud detection, and more.
Through the Infosys Innovation Network, Infosys is also looking for cooperation opportunities with quantum computing firms (IIN). This partnership would help strengthen Infosys Cobalt, a suite of services, solutions, and platforms enabling businesses to expedite their cloud journey. It provides 14,000 cloud assets and 200 industry cloud solution designs.
“Quantum Computing is an area of intense research, and a number of businesses around the world are asking about its timeline and the opportunities that it could open,” said Matt Garman, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Amazon Web Services. “At this stage, it’s important to be aware and evaluate the potential future impact of quantum computing. Infosys, a long-standing for AWS Premier Consulting Partner, has experience in incubating emerging technology solutions. We see this collaboration as an important step towards setting the right expectations when discussing business problems with customers where quantum computing could have a role.”
