(MicrosoftCloudBlogs) Ally Financial, a leading digital financial services company, has shared that it is partnering with Microsoft on Azure Quantum solutions. Ally will utilize Azure Quantum to explore how Microsoft’s quantum capabilities can help deliver impact for their customers.
Ally is working with Microsoft’s Quantum team to explore solving optimization problems and quantum computing. Given the breadth of products that Ally offers, new algorithms and future quantum hardware can help leverage the company’s rich set of data to help professionals in the field make better decisions. This can be anything from knowing why a customer is likely to contact the Ally call center to portfolio management and streamlining business processes.
Even though large-scale quantum computers won’t be available in the near term, their future availability is something for which businesses across the board need to prepare. With access to Azure Quantum, Ally is preparing a quantum-ready workforce that will be able to leverage scalable hardware as it becomes available.
