Today’s decision support tools are useful but limited — and running algorithms can be computationally expensive. We need statistical shortcuts that simplify incredibly complex equations so that they can run on today’s hardware. This Executive Update highlights the “quantum leap” and how it will end estimating and solve equations in their full complexity. Instead of waiting 24 hours, the solution might only take a second. Within the next 10-20 years, the quantum computing era can lead us to a fully intelligent enterprise.
