Arvind Krishna unveils his plans for IBM, particularly in quantum computing, at Think 2022

On May 10 and 11, IBM’s Think Broadcast conference was held in Boston. This annual event, after two years of broadcasting in virtual form, this year physically welcomed business leaders, industry experts, AI players who came to discuss with IBM experts around the cloud. hybrid, cybersecurity, quantum computing, automation and significant technological advances. Arvind Krishna notably presented the extension of his IBM roadmap for quantum.

Think on Tour will extend the Broadcast Conference with a series of exclusive, invitation-only events in cities around the world. Local players will come and share their experience in different areas: data and AI, cybersecurity and modernizing businesses with the hybrid cloud. After London, Berlin, Toronto, Singapore, the Think Paris event will take place on June 8 and will continue internationally.

Arvind Krishna, CEO of IBM since April 2020 where he has worked since 1990, has established new markets for the company in cloud, artificial intelligence, quantum computing and blockchain.

He says about the Think conferences:

“Technology is now the source of competitive advantage with digital transformation in mind. Our customers and partners trust IBM to deliver the innovation behind the hybrid cloud, artificial intelligence and consulting solutions that help ensure their success. Our Think events will show how IBM is co-creating with an expanding ecosystem to make progress on the most pressing issues facing business and society today. »

Extending the roadmap for practical, large-scale quantum computing

IBM is aiming for more qubits, up to hundreds of thousands in the future. To enable these systems with the speed and quality needed for practical quantum computing, the company plans to create intelligent software that will distribute workloads between quantum and classical resources and thus eliminate infrastructure problems.

IBM will offer three new scalable architectures for modular and networked quantum processors. They will also allow it to reach its goal for 2025: a processor with more than 4,000 qubits built with several clusters of processors on a modular scale.

Until then, the 433-qubit “Osprey” and 1,121-qubit “Condor” processors, scheduled for release in 2022 and 2023 respectively, will allow it to test the limits of single-chip processors and control quantum systems. on a large scale integrated into IBM. Quantum system two

Arvind Krishna told Washington Post Live days before Think Broadcast that these computers will have the ability to solve different problems, from climate change to electric vehicle batteries, that current computers cannot.

He explains :

“We have released a roadmap that by 2023 we plan to be at 1000 cubits computer. So in 2023 or 2024, we’re going to be able to start solving problems that could have a big impact… There’s so much promise in what these technologies can bring us in a few years, and now it’s in a few years, and not in a few decades either. »

Acceleration of the partnership with SAP

As part of a long-standing partnership with the German company SAP, IBM has started a project to transform SAP ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), in order to better support its customers and fuel the company’s growth. She explains in her press release:

  • IBM is currently migrating to SAP S/4HANA®, SAP’s next-generation ERP system. The company-led project will eventually move more than 375TB of data from on-premises and multiple cloud environments, accelerated by RISE with SAP on IBM Power on Red Hat Enterprise Linux on IBM Cloud.
  • The major IT transformation, led by IBM Consulting, will eventually move more than 300 SAP instances and consolidate 500 servers with RISE with SAP on IBM Power on Red Hat Enterprise Linux on IBM Cloud. The SAP S/4HANA® migration is currently underway in the company’s $13 billion software business unit, where it is currently in production.

Train talents and fight against cyberattacks

IBM has pledged to train 30 million people by 2030, tackling the talent shortage and cybersecurity crisis with new and expanded partnerships with six historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), the US Department of Veterans Affairs and Specialisterne Foundation.

These six centers (North Carolina A&T State University, Southern University System, Clark Atlanta University, Xavier University of Louisiana, Morgan State University, South Carolina State University), will have access for several years to a personalized cybersecurity experience with IBM: learning programs online, cloud access, immersive learning.
