Quantum Computing to Usher in Fundamental Technology Change

Novarica report suggests that while changes won’t be immediate, insurers should incorporate quantum into their five-year plans

Boston, MA (Jan. 25, 2018) – The technology of today is still limited by barriers imposed by classic binary computing. Quantum computing will bring about a change in technology that will impact the fundamentals underlying data usage and protection, risk modeling, and the very nature of insurance core systems. In a new report, Quantum Computing and Insurance: Overview and Potential Players, research and advisory firm Novarica provides an overview of the definitions of quantum, potential areas of impact, and current players in the space.

“With recent breakthroughs, quantum computing’s operationalization is close,” says Mitch Wein, Vice President of Research and Consulting, and co-author of the new report. “Quantum will usher in a technology change; independent of consumer adoption rates, the insurance industry will have to adopt it. Novarica expects this technology to substantially impact the insurance industry between 2023 and 2030.”
