It has been almost a month since IBM announced the release of Digital Experience 8.5 and I just read a blog post from one of our Senior Solution Architects, Shyam Sunter who gives a great tutorial and highlights as he installs the new WebSphere Portal V8.5 Extended Addition.

Downloading the Installables
IBM made it easy for me to search for WebSphere Portal v8.5 installables and find all relevant e-Assemblies. The only thing that I find slightly irritating is that the relevant WebSphere Portal v8.5 e-Assembly was right at the bottom of the page. No worries – a quick browser text search for got me to the right e-Assembly.
Expanding the eAssembly – you can immediately see that IBM has change the packaging a little bit. The e-Assembly only has WebSphere Portal images.In the past, you would have to wade down through a whole list of other supporting software components (TDS, DB2, etc.). This has confused users (both new and old) in the past. No longer the case this time.  The right step towards a simpler “Digital Experience” perhaps? Excellent!
