Inside Quantum Technology San Diego is the first international conference devoted entirely to the QUANTUM ENTERPRISE. IQT Research has forecast that the great leap forward for quantum technology will take place as quantum computing and quantum safe environments are adopted in businesses and government organizations. As this happens the IT community and data communication firms will embrace the quantum paradigm and expenditures from the new QUANTUM ENTERPRISE sector will then take the great leap forward. Nine vertical topics encompassing 34 sessions from over 80 speakers will provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the state of the QUANTUM ENTERPRISE.
