The company also announced plans to collaborate with the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras, an IBM Quantum Innovation Center, for joint quantum research and workforce development.

These collaborations are more than an innovation milestone; they’re an important step towards a future where quantum computing could help solve more complex problems faster and more efficiently. Importantly, it positions us to expedite our customers’ journey towards realizing the immense value of quantum computing, readying them to leverage these advanced technologies for transformative solutions.”

LTIMindtree, through this collaboration, aims to establish a series of long-term projects, including applied research on business and societal problems, research grants and quantum computing workshops.

LTIMindtree posted encouraging numbers in its quarterly financial performance report for the quarter ending in December 2023.
