Q-CTRL Launched Quantum Computing Education Platform Black Opal

Q-CTRL, Australia’s quantum computing leader, has announced the launch of its Black Opal Enterprise interactive educational platform designed to help businesses adopt quantum computing.

The Sydney-based company’s Black Opal, which aims to quantum-ready businesses, has already been sold to quantum computing provider IonQ, as well as soon-to-be-announced Big Four consultancies, a Fortune 500 petrochemical company, a military unit in Australia and a government research center in the UK.

Q-CTRL said the platform is the only complete and interactive enterprise-ready quantum computing education platform, which now includes user management, monitoring, analysis and co -branding.

Its launch follows the release of Black Opal for individual users in April 2022.

Mick Conroy, Q-CTRL Black Opal Product Manager, said, “Black Opal lowers the barriers to understanding quantum computing for businesses and organizations building quantum-ready teams and empowered customers.

“In our customer engagement – ​​and even in my own on-the-job quantum computing learning journey – we discovered how powerful building the right visual tools with enterprise functionality could be.”

Conroy said Black Opal’s intuitive, visual, and highly interactive platform makes it easy for anyone to learn quantum computing, regardless of their career background. J

The demand for people with technical expertise is even more acute in the quantum industry, and employees are demanding the training provided by Black Opal Enterprise, according to Q-CTRL.

IonQ SVP Product and Marketing Ariel Braunstein said, “As one of Black Opal Enterprise’s earliest customers, I find the depth of content and quality execution of Q-CTRL’s edtech tool for quantum computing are very impressive.

“The tool will facilitate internal training initiatives to onboard new employees and support their growth. Quantum computing is an exciting new industry and there is always something new to learn, for all levels of expertise.
