Veloxia Technology's co-founding CEO Tugay Alyildiz explains the implications of the cluster structure from the perspective of an enterprise architect. A deep-dive analysis of the cluster structure explaining pros & cons with real-life examples, potential challenges and solutions, deciding when/how to build it, etc. Professionals in gaming that have a say in production/project management will find this talk very useful.

Veloxia has successfully developed 4 titles using this structure; and the experience covered in this lecture provides real-life examples on many areas of the topic. The integration process itself is a huge challenge, as the team doesn't grow all at once - it is more of process management.


Detailed information on the cluster structure will help professionals decide on when/how to build the cluster structure within their firms/startups. All shared with examples from an international team (3 continents and distinct time-zones), always with various products at a time, and very diverse in terms of age, gender, and nationality.

Intended Audience

Any professional in the gaming industry that has a say in the production and/or project management, planning organizational structure(s), etc. would find many revelations in this lecture. Especially the ones struggling with resource allocation and possibly working under-efficiently would benefit from this article.
