New WordPress site for Athene

Athene - Smart Strategies

We are happy to announce the rebranding of a WordPress site that we had originally coded in 2011.

After the acquisition of Aviva USA by Athene Holding Ltd. last year we were asked to help with the rebranding of bestyouaviva.com, a blog that was successfully run by Aviva USA for three years. Part of the content stayed—but the user interface and some of the functionality of the site changed. The redesigned blog—now under the Athene umbrella – has been renamed as Athene – Smart Strategies and was launched in April 2014.

BS TechTalk: CMS Comparison: Drupal vs. WordPress

Drupal vs. WordPress logosBoyle Software’s VP of Front-End Development, Uwe Kristen, delivered the latest in our series of Tech Talks, discussing the current state of Content Management Systems on the Web and comparing two of the most popular CMSes: WordPress and Drupal.

Today, one third of the Web’s top million sites – from simple blogs to complex e-commerce sites – utilize some sort of CMS. According to BuiltWith.com, WordPress accounts for the lion’s share, powering 63% of the top million sites; Drupal, by contrast, accounts for only  9%. But, when looking at the top 10,000 websites, Drupal’s share jumps to 20% while WordPress dips to 52%. The reason for the overall disparity in usage of these two CMSes is, most likely, the steeper learning curve of Drupal compared with the ultra-easy WordPress. However, Drupal’s expanded share of the top 10,000 sites suggests that the more “advanced” developers of those top-tier sites prefer and/or require the greater flexibility of Drupal over the less-robust WordPress.
