      The initial research (LEXI-313) showed that there is not a perfect solution for all of our customers. The idea is to provide a by default administration experience and, if the customer's needs are not accurately fulfilled with the by default provided experience, give them the possibility to easily remove it and easily create a new custom administration experience for its particular case. 

      The proposal is based on the division of the product menu into Control Panel ( that contains all System and Virtual instances applications) and Site Administration regarding the importance to clearly identify the scope level and focusing into different admin roles. Depending on the users' permissions they will have access to all or parts of the experience. Through settings they will be able to show / hide elements inside the by default admin experience, allowing users to only view what they need and focus in a contextualised work environment.   

      This link contains a ux proposal (not visual design reviewed) regarding the site admin experience.
      The following spreadsheet contains the Site Administration new information architecture.

      A blog post has been written to sum up the process and conclusions around Administration experience, containing both control panel and site administration.
