You're welcome. Thanks for letting me know you couldn't view the video.
This isn't EXACTLY what he says in the video, but it hits all of the important points:
"On November 5th, 2018, we announced that Broadcom successfully completed the acquisition of CA Technologies.
The Broadcom acquisition creates a tremendous opportunity for our customers and partners, particularly in the Mainframe business. To fully appreciate this, it’s important to understand Broadcom’s perspective on Enterprise IT.
Broadcom recognizes the opportunity of the data center market. Growth in their networking and storage businesses reflects the need for large data centers, run by both enterprises and service providers, to securely and reliably scale. Much of this growth is driven by digital transformation initiatives pervading every industry and geography and will drive continued growth in IT.
Broadcom also realizes Mainframes remain the backbone of data centers like yours, where scale and performance matter for the world’s most mission-critical applications. Hence, Broadcom sees the natural synergy of their industry-leading IT Infrastructure offerings with CA’s industry-leading suite of Mainframe solutions for Hybrid IT environments.
Broadcom has a decades-long track record of being the technology leader in the markets they serve. Broadcom invests over $3.2 billion a year on R&D and product development. CEO Hock Tan recently stated in Broadcom’s 3Q, 2018 Earnings Call referencing the CA Mainframe business “So bottom line, we actually see this opportunity, a great opportunity I might say, to double down for future growth.” This will benefit you as a customer. As part of Broadcom, our focus on continuous innovation will remain the cornerstone of delivering customer value while only increasing our investment.
As the leader of Broadcom’s Mainframe Division, I am extremely optimistic about the future. We are committed to innovation and customer service, as we have proven thus far, and will continue to demonstrate every day as part of the Broadcom family.
Finally, thank you for being a CA, now Broadcom, customer. Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at Gregory.Lotko@broadcom.com."
Is there a text version?
My company blocks YouTube and Videos in general.
Thanks for the feedback. Always appreciated.
I agree and that includes a good old fashioned text only version. Some of us do not need to / would rather not see a video and would prefer just the text available separately. It is searchable and faster to read.
Just saw it, thanks for getting this taken are of. Would encourage all accessible means be deployed for multimedia platforms..

Joe -- thanks for this comment. I'm actually in the process of working on the caption today as well. If I don't get the copy from the team that created it, I'll transcribe what Greg is saying myself within the YouTube editor. I'll make sure that I comment on this thread when it's ready. I appreciate your patience!
Hi Lenn..This video isn't captioned so individuals like myself cannot follow. Can you recommend to your higher ups at CA/Broadcom to caption all their utube content please?Thanks, -Joe
