HCL QC Pilot Planning: 4-6 week Workshop

HCL Technologies

Pilot planning would be done with the help of a workshop to define the target customer/audience, help the decision-makers align, and focus the sprint on a clear problem & help them understand the req.

Problem framing is a problem-solving method that’s designed to align the entire team with one solution for a project by structuring the issue’s details in a digestible and collaborative way. Pilot planning would be done with the help of a workshop to define the target customer/audience, help the decision-makers align, and focus the sprint on a clear problem & help them understand the requirements/current gaps. This will aid in developing a proof of concept which would help organizations in testing project and business feasibility using Azure Quantum and also understand whether it’s going to be a success, need tweaking to succeed or fall flat on its face. This would help in creating a roadmap for Pilot by leveraging Quantum Computing in solving business problems.

Pilot Planning framework we would follow:

• Discovery Exercise

• Business Objectives

• Scope

• Technical Recommendations

• Execution Approach

Agenda of the workshops

• Problem formulation & feasibility study: 2-3 days

• Problem prioritization: 1-2 days

• Quantum validation of shortlisted problems: 1-3 days

• Understanding data & preparation: 5-7 days

• Algorithm recommendations: 3-5 days

• Hardware recommendations: 2-5 days

• Sample business case: 5 days

Who should avail this service?

• Scientists, R&D Heads, BU Heads

Key Deliverables

• Define the problem statement

• Prioritize the problem statements

• Validate whether the problem is quantum solvable

• Recommendation around the algorithms/packages to be used

• Recommendation on QC Infrastructure (hardware/software) required

• Help in defining the business case for PoC execution
