UP finance minister Rajesh Agarwal says won’t let TCS to shut down Lucknow centre

Lucknow: Amid fears among Tata Consultancy Services employees that Indias largest software outsourcer may close down its unit here, the Uttar Pradesh government today said it will not let TCS go out of the state capital.

“We will not let it (TCS) go from the state capital. We will look into it,” states Finance Minister Rajesh Agarwal told PTI here.

TCS employees have also approached Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to ensure that the company did not leave Lucknow.

Agarwal’s assurance came after UP ministers Swami Prasad Maurya and Mohsin Raza told the employees last week that their interests would be protected.

Maurya, who is state labour and employment minister, had said necessary negotiations would be held to protect the interest of its employees, numbering around 2,000.

Raza too had said if needed, he would speak to the TCS management and the employees to find a way out.

While the TCS staff panicked, a company spokesperson described certain media reports as “rumours.”

“There have been rumours and reports being circulated in the media about the company’s operations in Lucknow. TCS would like to clarify that it is only consolidating its UP operations in Noida and there will be no job loss as a consequence,” a TCS spokesperson said in a statement on Thursday.

“TCS is working to ensure that employees get the opportunities in Noida and other centres across India,” the statement said.

It came in the wake of media reports that TCS staffers claimed they were informed by their team leaders and senior officials that the company is wrapping up the work at the Lucknow unit.

Tata Consultancy Services added 11,202 (gross) employees during the quarter under review, taking its total head count to over 3.85 lakh.

Adobe debuts Project Rush, its new all-in-one video editor

Adobe today announced the launch of Project Rush, a new video editor that takes the core features of its pro tools like Premiere Pro, After Effects and Audition and combines them into a single, more accessible tool. Don’t get too excited yet, though, the new tool will only be available later this year (and my guess would be a launch at the company’s Max conference in October).

The target audience for Rush is the average YouTube creator who is looking to get professional-looking results — and do so fast because the expectation on the platform is for regularly pushing out new content. Rush wants to become the all-in-one video editing app for creating and sharing online content and to do so, the team decided that it had to ensure that Rush was available on any device, no matter whether it’s a high-powered desktop or an iPhone. All projects are automatically synced to the cloud, so you can work from anywhere.

In building Rush, Adobe decided to leverage the technology it had already developed for its professional tools. That means when you tweak a video clip’s color, for example, you are using the same underlying algorithms as a video editor who works in Premiere, for example. Rush will also support Motion Graphics templates for building title sequences and graphs in videos and it’ll use the company’s AI tools for improving the audio of video clips. There is also an integration with Adobe Stock, in case you need a bit of stock footage to spice up your video.

Based on the demo I saw, this all looks pretty intuitive and quite a bit more like iMovie than Premiere.

Once you’ve created your video, the next step is obviously publishing it and in the spirit of helping creatives work faster, Rush features built-in publishing support for all fo the major sharing platform, be that YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Snapchat.
