- Agreement with the European management and technology consultancy group ensures quantum education and exploration remain a key business priority for both companies in the region
IonQ (NYSE: IONQ), an industry leader in quantum computing, today announced an agreement with BearingPoint - a leading European management and technology consulting firm with offices in 24 countries - to offer IonQ quantum system access and professional services to clients across Europe. BearingPoint consultants can now propose use cases and solutions for public and private groups that leverage the power of IonQ’s systems, helping them formulate positions on the rapidly evolving technology.
"We are pleased to announce today's collaboration with BearingPoint as they advise clients on the benefits and potential applications of quantum computing," said Peter Chapman, President and CEO of IonQ. "Today's agreement ensures that IonQ's industry-leading systems and services reach all the audiences that will benefit from quantum computing - people who are curious about quantum and want to explore new ways to integrate quantum into their existing workflows."
BearingPoint is one of Europe's leading management and technology consultancies with more than 5,000 employees serving more than 1,000 clients worldwide. With deep industry expertise in eight market segments, including automotive, capital markets, chemicals, and the public sector, BearingPoint partners with technology providers such as IonQ to develop joint solutions for clients and create innovative use cases for a variety of industries.
"We are excited to partner with IonQ," said Matthias Röser, Global Leader Technology at BearingPoint. "We see quantum as a decision accelerator for enterprises and look forward to providing our clients with strategic advice on how best to prepare for and integrate quantum into their tech stack."
Today's agreement signals IonQ's continued push to expand its presence internationally. In July, the company announced a partnership with Switzerland-based QuantumBasel to establish a European quantum data center. This move follows an April announcement to provide the United Arab Emirates Quantum Center with access to IonQ Aria. Earlier this year, IonQ also opened its first office in Canada following its acquisition of Entangled Networks.
