Microsoft's CEO Satya Nadella announced Quantum Azure today during his keynote address at the Microsoft Ignite Conference. Quantum Azure is a  full-stack, cloud-based approach to quantum computing.  

While actual quantum computers may still be a few years off, the hardware and software components that make quantum and quantum-inspired computing possible are coming together quickly.  

Fasken's client, Vancouver-based, 1QB Information Technologies Inc., is an essential part of the Quantum Azure stack providing its software to the Solutions Services layer.
