Quantum Computing Workday (1-day)
Our founder, or one of our team members, will work with you for one day on your agenda. You may buy multiple days to fund a project. We work an 8-hour day, or longer.
We believe management consulting is pursuing "the art of the possible"
- We offer traditional IT management consulting services.
- We offer quantum computing consulting
- We offer financial analysis of stock portfolios based on our Chicago Quantum Net Score and Chicago Quantum Ratio (read more in our published research).
- We run your business problem on our discrete mathematical models & quantum annealing computers from D-Wave Systems Inc.
- We ALWAYS work confidentially, diligently, free of conflict of interest, and bring our best thinking and insights.
- We are a small team of smart, analytical consultants.
- We help you understand the quantum computing ecosystem (hardware, software and services).
- We help you describe and test out a quantum computing use case.
We operate at both the strategic and tactical level depending on client need. This includes business strategy, business problem decomposition, mathematical and data design, algorithm design, and use of quantum and classical solvers.
Why pay for consulting?
Once you pay for our time, we dedicate 100% of our professional efforts and energies to achieving your objectives and working on your agenda. We work for you and serve your interests exclusively during that time. When we meet for free (and we do to develop clients), it is considered clientele development and we think about our own interests too.
What shall we work on during this hour?
Structuring a problem to solve it via hybrid classical / quantum computing methods.
5 steps: 1) Clarify the business problem, 2) Convert into mathematics or logic, 3) Gather data required to solve it, 4) Convert into code and run, and 5) Display and explain results.
This is high-value work and hard-core problem solving. Founder likely will bring in our academic team or domain experts to help (and bill for their time too).
We exclude hardware and software costs. If we own a computer or software and use it, then there is no additional cost. If we have to buy or rent resources, we will mark that cost up by 10% and pass it along to you. Of course, we will first ask you if it is ok to proceed.
We serve both the IT service provider community, and clients who consume IT services to strengthen business relationships. We also help clients identify service providers and technologies in the quantum computing space.
Please see our website (Sourcing Advice page) for our list of services.
Quantum Security (or Secure Communications)
We will help clients think through Post-Quantum Cryptography. We will help clients buy and implement Quantum Key Distribution systems.
Quantum Computing Strategy
We will facilitate a discussion of what quantum computing can do now, and the expectations over time. We can bring the focus of a theoretical physicist, a mathematician, or a seasoned business executive. In some cases, we can bring all three to the discussion (sorry, usually requires three billable participants from Chicago Quantum).
We believe that a strategy discussion is also a training and enablement session. This is about visualizing the art of the possible in regards to advanced computing infrastructure. We will come prepared to apply what we collectively know about your industry, your challenges, and the state of the union of the technology to drive towards a conclusion that makes sense.
Most of us have spent our professional lives structuring and solving problems with pencil and paper (we still do), and using classical or traditional means. We may end up doing that, or we might find and define problems that are solved better with quantum computers.
If you would like, we can use some of our time to document our discussion, and send a management brief.
If you would like, we can travel to your location (travel reimbursement if > 35 miles from 60035)
