The old flatten navigator menu hierarchy was designed 13 years ago, it handled the average customer installation of 10-20 apps, but wasn't scalable for admin super users that could be presented up to 300+ app entries. It also wasn't responsive or easily rendered on smaller displays such as tablets or mobile.
Three desktop designs were initially pitched, quick guerilla testing found that users had reservations with Design 2. because of related scrolling using the accordion design.
Three OOTB themes the Visual Design team created, showing how the Naviagtor menu integrated with the theming engine and overall product.
