SQL Server Migration Assistant for Oracle V2.0 Beta


SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA) is a complete suite of tools that dramatically cuts the effort, cost, and risk of migrating from Oracle to SQL Server. SSMA automates almost every aspect of the migration process including assessment, schema and data migration, business logic conversion, and validation. Companies such as Motorola and Simon & Schuster have used SSMA to migrate their business-critical databases quickly, easily and accurately.

With SSMA, IT organizations now have the freedom to move to SQL Server and take advantage of SQL Server’s exceptional security, scalability, developer productivity, and the industry’s lowest total cost of ownership.


SSMA is a FREE download, and is available for use by any customer or partner with no charge or any obligations. However, the product requires a license key for activation. The key can be obtained after quick and simple registration. Microsoft reserves the right to use an e-mail address or phone number provided during registration in order to contact a customer regarding his/her SSMA experience.

    I was unable to connect to SQL Server using Windows Authentication.  I have not found any documentation stating that SSMA requires SQL Authentication.  If this is the case, as I suspect it is, this should be changed in the next release.  Government Servers (DoD) do not allow SQL Authentication so SSMA will not be usable on these servers.
