T-Systems to Offer Expertise and Access to Quantum Computing

T-Systems announced it will provide customers with cloud access to IBM quantum computers. The offerings range from one-day introductory sessions to business-case proofs-of-concept over several months.

The access to quantum systems includes multiple quantum computers powered by the 127-qubit IBM Eagle processor. This announcement sees the Deutsche Telekom IT subsidiary embark on the path to providing access to this technology, as well as insights on how it can be applied to its customers’ businesses. In addition, T-Systems will offer dedicated quantum know-how and training.

Customers will have access to T-Systems quantum services tailored to their needs, in a set of different customizable packages. These range from one-day introductory sessions to business case proofs-of-concept over several months. The use of IBM Quantum computational resources over the cloud together with T-Systems’ services, will lower the barrier to quantum computing. This will allow T-Systems to develop and test customers’ use cases and prepare them for a future with quantum computing.

By integrating quantum computing into its portfolio, the company aims to further leverage its leadership position in advisory, cloud services, and digital solutions beyond the local markets in key focus industries. The ultimate goal is to provide clients with a seamless experience, incorporated into their cloud landscape, as they look to uncover the potential of quantum computing for their businesses.

“Quantum computing will be central to tomorrow’s IT landscape. We are combining quantum and classical computing in a seamless and scalable customer experience,“ states Adel Al-Saleh, Deutsche Telekom board member and Chief Executive of T-Systems. “Taking these first decisive steps will lower the access barrier to quantum computing. At IBM, we have a trusted partner to deliver this future technology. It is a perfect match for our industry focus and expertise.“

“Organizations around the world are beginning to explore how quantum computing will impact their industry and business. By partnering with T-Systems as a cloud provider, we will be able to offer access to quantum technology to an even broader ecosystem. Our team at IBM is excited to support T-Systems’ and their customers’ exploration of, and aspirations for quantum applications for their business operations,“ says Scott Crowder, Vice President of IBM Quantum Adoption and Business Development.
