Adapting COBIT for Quantum Computing Governance

by Miguel Ángel Blanco and Mario Piattini Velthuis
Quantum computing is a new paradigm that uses the properties of quantum mechanics to achieve computers and technologies more powerful. Quantum Technology will solve some types of problems more efficiently than current technology. Every organization that wants to use all the power of quantum computing to be more competitive in its sector, must have a method that allows it to take advantage of all the value that this technology can provide. This article proposes the development of a framework for the Management and Governance of Quantum Computing based on COBIT.

Reverse Engineering of Quantum Programs Toward KDM Models

by Luis Jiménez-Navajas, Ricardo Pérez-Castillo and Mario Piattini Velthuis
The new computing paradigm influences the way on how future information systems will be built. Legacy, classical systems cannot be simply replaced with quantum software by several reasons. First, legacy systems usually embed a lot of mission-critical knowledge over time, making its replacing too risky. Second, some business processes do not make sense to be supported through quantum computing because it supposes unnecessary expenses.

Math and Physics Tools for Quality Quantum Programming

by Ezequiel Murina
We are in presence of a quantum computing revolution that will be critical for the dominant global position of nations in near future. A solid knowledge base in math and physics is essential for a workforce able to develop high quality quantum technology. 
This work addresses the necessity of quantum literacy for the creation of a new workforce, proposing the basic math tools, and physics background for entering into the field of quantum programming. It also addresses a certification about Science Foundation for Quantum Programming, as a means for assuring the quality of quantum software professionals.

Quantum Agile Development Framework

by Guillermo José Hernández González & Claudio Andrés Paradela
The interest in quantum computing has grown exponentially in recent years, with large technology companies engaging in the creation of computers and quantum technologies. In this paper, aQuantum’s findings and proposals are defined to anticipate the future needs of quantum software project management, taking into account the new roles, requirements and deficiencies of this new technology. Specifically, we focus on defining a classical-agile hybrid project management framework that can be adapted to the needs of these new programming paradigms.

Quantum Computing: A New Software Engineering Golden Age

by Mario Piattini, Guido Peterssen, Ricardo Pérez-Castillo
Quantum computing is not an evolution of classical computer science; it is actually a revolution that completely changes the computing paradigm. We are sure that quantum computing will be the main driver for a new software engineering golden age during the present decade of the 2020s.

Introduction to Quantum Development

by Jose Luis Hevia
Brief presentation to introduce to the Quantum basics needed to understand the Quantum Computing Principles. Quantum Computers that make possible the usage of the fundamental part of the nature, to know more about the nature; that can give us a power of computation never seen before; and that require us a new way to address the problems.

Quantum algorithms for near-term devices

by Jordi Tura
Here we discuss quantum algorithms for the so-called k-local Hamiltonian problem. This is one of the problems that is QMA-complete which, roughly speaking, is the NP-complete analogue for a quantum computer.

Quantum Software Testing

by Macario Polo Usaola
This article introduces some ideas and challenges related to the testing
of quantum programs. In particular, it approaches functional testing, white
box testing (specially mutation) and model-based testing.

Reengineering of Information Systems toward Classical-Quantum Systems

by Ricardo Pérez-Castillo
In the coming years, companies will progressively need to add quantum computing to some or all of their daily operations. It is clear that all existing, classical information systems cannot be thrown away. Instead of this, it is expected to add some quantum algorithms working embedded in classical information systems.
