Investigation into Interoperability in Cloud Computing: An Architectural Model

Susan Sutherland, Girija Chetty

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper presents an architectural model that enables the convergence of the interoperability of Enterprise Architecture (EA), Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Cloud Services. As per the reviewed literature by the authors, there is a lack of research in this space of cloud computing. Hence the authors' research developed an innovative solution to provide a `plug and play' architectural model to seamlessly connect the enterprise systems to cloud within the governance standards of enterprise architecture. The rest of the paper discusses the identified research problem and articulates the developed model while validating the model with a few use cases, and concluding that the research community could further validate the model with their respective application use cases.
