SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA) for Oracle, MySQL, SAP ASE (formerly SAP Sybase ASE), DB2, and Access allows users to convert a database schema to a Microsoft SQL Server schema, upload the schema, and then migrate data to the target SQL Server (see below for supported versions).
The latest release of SSMA enhances each “flavor” of the tool with a targeted set of fixes that are designed to improve quality and conversion metrics.
IMPORTANT: A known issue with auto-update may cause the failure of an update from SSMA v8.0 to v8.1. If you encounter this error, please download and install the new version manually.
