Abstract [en]

This master thesis was performed at IdaInfront AB. The aim of the thesis was toinvestigate how the design principles ofthe user interface in Windows 8 can beapplied to a case management system. Theuser interface in Windows 8 is based ona design language called Metro and it isprimarily designed for touch screens.Ida Infront AB wanted to know whatpossibilities and limitations the Metrointerface offers.The study has resulted in a prototypeapplication that is developed in Windows8. The prototype shows how the Metrointerface can be applied on a casemanagement system. Some limitations inthe usability have been identified inthe Metro interface when applied to acase management system. The mainlimitation is that it is difficult todisplay a lot of information at the sametime in Metro applications. The abilityto display a lot of information isimportant when IT systems are used tosupport decision making. The Metrointerface also offers several newfeatures that are usable for a casemanagement system, such as semanticzoom, notifications, so called tiles andbuilt in functionality of sharingcontent between applications.
