Interested in quantum computing, but not sure how to get started? The D-Wave Launch™ program is designed to help enterprises go from problem discovery through production implementation. In a Quantum Proof of Concept (QPoC), D-Wave helps you to explore your selected optimization use case through detailed problem discovery, problem definition, development of an initial prototype solution, and testing with representative sample data. D-Wave’s professional services team members will work with you to identify, prioritize, and develop a quantum hybrid solution for your selected business problem, demonstrating the practical business value that can be attained through an application running on the Leap™ quantum cloud service.

Project activities will include the following:

  • Collaborating to develop a deeper understanding of the optimization use case
  • Identifying the data required to proceed with QPoC development and testing
  • Identifying the high-level requirements of a prospective, longer-term solution
  • Developing an optimization model to be used as the foundation of the QPoC
  • Building a functioning QPoC to demonstrate feasibility and potential business value
  • Testing the QPoC using problem specific sample data As each business problem is unique, the exact timescale necessary to produce a QPoC is variable. Average project duration is typically between 3-6 months.


During the course of this project, D-Wave will work with you to produce deliverables that demonstrate the value of a quantum hybrid application to solve your business problem. Types of deliverables include:

  • Bi-weekly status reports
  • QPoC code required to prep data, build model, and submit to the cloud-based solvers in Leap
  • Project summary report to include the following:
    • Problem definition
    • Problem formulation
    • QPOC overview
    • QPOC test results
    • Recommendations for future phases of work
  • Executive summary presentation to summarize the report details


During the project, D-Wave will provide up to five (5) of your team members with access to D-Wave’s Leap quantum cloud platform as needed for exploration and development related to the project.


To help your team get up to speed on the Leap platform and to empower you to be able to create your own quantum hybrid applications, D-Wave will provide up to five (5) seats in our regularly scheduled week-long, self-paced and instructor-led, online training.
