Abstract: Today there are many IT-systems holding information about different things. The information can for example be anything from news feeds to complex environment systems. By making these system collaborate with each other new oppurtunities and functionality can be established. However, since most of the systems are developed individually, there are different ways to communicate with each system. Therefore, The IT-agency Gaia has started a collaboration with the real estate company Klövern AB. The intention was to develop a plat- form for functional- and informational distribution focusing on commercial real estates. The platform was supposed to be available for Klöverns tenants and be used in public environments providing access to intelligent environment systems, processes in facility management and interactive information channels. This report describes the user study, the idea development and the implementation of two Windows 8 Metro application prototypes communicating through this platform. The two prototypes was directed towards the Cnema and Gaia which are both tenants of Klövern. Furthermore, both the applications was written in C# and uses ASP.Net library Signalr for real-time communication.
