Aggregator Plug and Play Quantum Applications Commercialization Store
Stefanini, a Global IT solutions company, announced today that it has joined the FirstQ Store Partner Alliance. The FirstQ Store is the aggregator plug and play commercialization store for near quantum and quantum ready applications being launched today by CogniFrame, a Toronto, Canada based company.
“Our goal is to help our customers benefit from the latest innovative solutions and technology and Quantum is poised to offer a transformative experience and real ROI” says Fabio Caversan, Innovation and Digital Business VP at Stefanini. “Our sales teams are engaged with CogniFrame to bring the benefits of quantum ready technology to our customers, users and developers worldwide. This is an important initiative for us, and we are pursuing several opportunities for commercial deployment and development of solutions for new use cases. We have several developers in our ecosystem who we believe will benefit from this partnership and access and we expect several new solutions to be built. We are very excited to be part of this innovative rollout” he added.
This patent pending aggregator quantum store consists of a desktop application that works on Windows, Mac and Linux and a registration portal. The store supports plug and play commercial scale solutions to a select few pre-defined solutions and access to near quantum and quantum hardware. Clients can access solutions for the pre-defined use cases via the desktop app based on user profile and upload data and receive results for the selected use cases all from within the secure desktop app. Developers can use the app to submit QUBO’s or access the quantum hardware and build and test applications. Users can view the status of their jobs continually and results are available for download from within the desktop app.
“We are excited to work with Stefanini to onboard clients and developers. Using our plug and play model Stefanini can readily deploy quantum solutions for their clients. With access to production grade Toshiba SBM and Gate Simulators supported via desktop access on Windows, Mac and Linux we offer a true cross platform experience” said Vish Ramakrishnan, CEO CogniFrame.
Pre-defined commercial scale solutions tested with clients for select use cases are currently available on a plug and play basis allowing for easy adoption of quantum by institutions thus de-risking their adoption of quantum. Secondly, it also serves as a monetization platform for startups and others. New scalable solutions ready for commercialization will be added regularly and can be added at any time by anyone. The platform provides some widely applicable tools to assist algorithm development, such as automated penalty tuning, QUBO conversion, etc. Registration is now available via www.cogniframe.com or www.firstqstore.com.
