Accenture has made a minority investment in 1QBit, a  quantum computing firm based in Vancouver, British Columbia, through Accenture Ventures.

The two companies have also formed a strategic alliance, under which Accenture will be 1QBit’s preferred systems integrator. Accenture has been granted a license to use the 1QBit platform for demonstration, training, and the development and testing of Accenture tools and assets.

Accenture says it will leverage its alliance with 1QBit to develop a quantum-inspired analytics capability, and scale pilot opportunities.
