Abstract: Quantum computing is quickly turning from a promise to a reality, witnessing the launch of several cloud-based, general-purpose offerings, and IDEs. Unfortunately, however, existing solutions typically implicitly assume intimate knowledge about quantum computing concepts and operators. This paper introduces Quantum Service-Oriented Computing (QSOC), including a model-driven methodology to allow enterprise DevOps teams to compose, configure and operate enterprise applications without intimate knowledge on the underlying quantum infrastructure, advocating knowledge reuse, separation of concerns, resource optimization, and mixed quantum- & conventional QSOC applications.
