aQuantum

November 2018, Guido Peterssen creates, together with José Luis Hevia and Mario Piattini, a small working group, to which they later add some members of alhambraIT and the Alarcos Research Group, advance the study of quantum computing and detect the possibilities in the fields of Quantum Software Engineering and Development.

February 2019, as a result of a collaboration agreement signed between alhambraIT and the University of Castilla La Mancha (UCLM), aQuantum is created as an R&D group specialized in research, development, consulting and services in the fields of Quantum Software Engineering and Development, in which the Alarcos Research Group plays a relevant role in scientific research on Quantum Software Engineering.

November 2020, aQuantum, again attending to its growth, became aQuantum Software Engineering®.

October 2021, by agreement with QST, aQuantum releases public access to QuantumPath®, the first quantum software development platform for the hybrid solutions ecosystem.

April 2022, by agreement with QST, aQuantum launches QuantumPath® on Amazon Braket.

Alhambra IT is a company with extensive experience in the world of Information Technology and Communications. His vast experience in software solutions development, software development methodologies and software quality, combined with the vocation of innovation, has led it to the research and development of quantum programming.
