IT decision making is supported by the different kind of frameworks for IT governance, IT management and enterprise architecture. Two main governance principles, conformance and performance, can be established when the service has reached the status of a continuous service and service requests are managed (for example, services are supported). However, the context of service support is unestablished. Therefore, we present a conceptual context of service support by establishing how two main governance principles (conformance, performance) can be assigned with the governance entities (service, objective, service quality, measure, and contract). Furthermore, we present a service support framework because our literature review (212 hits, 20 appraised hits) did not get any clear evidences from service support in the IT governance, IT management and enterprise architecture context.
