Atos partners with Zapata to deliver complete quantum computing solution to the enterprise
Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, and US-based Zapata Computing Inc., a leading enterprise software company for quantum applications, today announced a global partnership to deliver an end-to-end quantum computing solution that combines Zapata’s software platform Orquestra™ (Orquestra) with the Atos Quantum Learning Machine (QLM) to address vertical markets.
The joint solution allows organizations to engage the world’s most difficult computational problems within oil and gas, aviation, finance and pharmaceutical industries with a unique approach ready to deploy and scale to real-world challenges. In addition, Atos and Zapata will also come together to provide comprehensive consulting services to help customers become quickly up-to-speed on the capabilities of quantum computing to solve their business problems.
Orquestra combines a software platform and quantum algorithm libraries to enable the next generation of discoveries — for a wide range of industries including chemistry, pharmaceuticals, logistics, finance and materials science — on quantum computers.
With Orquestra, we’ve developed a powerful software platform that delivers real-world advances in computational power for applications — particularly in chemistry, machine learning, and optimization — to run on Atos’ leading hardware solution,” said Christopher Savoie, CEO of Zapata Computing. “With Atos’ global footprint in over 70 countries, our partnership creates a complete solution for innovative enterprises developing their quantum roadmap for the future and accelerates the introduction and implementation of quantum computing to industries and markets worldwide.
Atos QLM is a stand-alone, hardware-agnostic appliance that provides access to an evolutive quantum programming environment and simulates the behavior of any kind of quantum computing technology. Atos has installed the QLM in numerous countries including Austria, France, Germany, India, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States empowering major research programs, including Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Argonne National Laboratory.
Partnering with Zapata to pair their next-generation of accessible, high-powered quantum software with the Atos QLM allows organizations to break through their computational glass ceilings and aim for new heights in practical business applications,” said Cyril Allouche, VP, Head of the Quantum R&D Program at Atos. “We are also taking all necessary steps to implement quantum solutions by providing appropriate training, onboarding and consulting services to customize the platform to specific business problems.
Zapata’s Orquestra software already supports several key use cases that can be deployed using the Atos QLM and benefit from its unique circuit optimization features and simulation capabilities, including:
