Rajiv Rao Named One of Top 25 Doers, Dreamers, and Drivers for 2022

The NYS Forum is happy to congratulate Board Member and longtime Forum advocate, Rajiv Rao for being named one of the Top 25 Doers, Dreamers, and Drivers for 2022 by Government Technology Magazine. Rajiv joins an impressive list of technology leaders from around the country who “…embody what it means to be doing the people’s business in a world where technology — and our expectations of it — is changing faster than ever.”

According to the magazine’s profile, Rajiv "...has provided crucial leadership for the state’s ongoing IT consolidation. As chief architect in 2012, Rao began building a data center and taking care of other consolidation projects. Within two years of Rao becoming chief technology officer in 2015, most of the heavy lifting — which involved over 50 agencies, 180,000 desktops, 20,000 servers and 1,500 miles of fiber network across the state — was completed.”

For the past decade, Rajiv has been at the center of every major technology initiative in NYS. We are thrilled to see him receive more well deserved recognition.
