SAN JOSE, Calif., May 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Broadcom Inc.

What distinguishes Broadcom is our deep investment in technology and how we work side-by-side in partnership with our clients to overcome their unique challenges and create new opportunities.”

Johan Bosch, executive director for iOCO Infrastructure Services, says, “Nothing can match the transaction performance of a mainframe, and the way that we manage the platform using Broadcom technology is a real differentiator for us.
