Abstract:


This paper argues that there is a convergence of interoperability of Cloud Computing (CC), Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Enterprise Architecture (EA). Furthermore, the paper outlines the existing non dynamic links between EA and SOA that are currently practised in the industry and confirmed by scholarly articles; and provides the state of art of the link that could exist in practice between cloud computing and SOA as researched from the published scholarly material. Finally, the paper presents the argument that there is a convergence of interoperability of CC, SOA and EA. It further refers to the planned research to test this theory first by developing a logical model of such a feasibility followed by a Proof of Concept.
