The Alkacon OpenCms Enterprise Extensions (also called OCEE) are a commercial extension for OpenCms 6. Alkacon OCEE adds features to OpenCms that are required for running OpenCms in a medium or large Enterprise, where data consistency, security and failover are highly important.

The Alkacon OpenCms Enterprise Extensions are available as a licensed software product from Alkacon Software GmbH, the company responsible for most of the development of the open source core OpenCms system.

Full information about Alkacon OCEE is available here.

The Alkacon OpenCms Enterprise Extensions are sold in two separate packages:
