Attention Managers: Why You Should Send Your Employees to LISA '04
Hiring the best and the brightest is the ultimate goal for any employer. However, keeping current employees up to par is just as important. Technology continues to evolve: truly to stay ahead of the game, your employees must continue to enhance their skills.

The training program at LISA '04 offers a cost-effective, one-stop shop for training current IT and development employees. Over 50 full- and half-day tutorials taught by the most respected leaders in the field provide an unparalleled opportunity to learn from the best. Tutorials cover a multitude of system administration topics including open source technologies, security, and defeating spam.

Combining full days of training with days of technical sessions on groundbreaking research related to system and network administration makes the LISA '04 experience even more valuable. Additionally, the Wednesday and Thursday evening receptions and Birds-of-a-Feather sessions provide your staff with a chance to network with peers and industry leaders to gain that all-important "inside" IT knowledge that will keep your company current and running smoothly. Keeping up with technology can be costly and time-consuming in this unforgiving economy: take full advantage of this opportunity to have your staff learn from the top researchers, practitioners, and authors all in one place, at one time.
