  • Hi,

    I don't know if the migration will be once or it should be executed periodically, any way You have multiple options to implement this:

    1- Developing a .Net Web service from scratch doing the extracting from Oracle and Loading to SQL DB using ADO.Net components.

    2- Developing SSIS package to do the extraction from Oracle and then loading the data to SQL server DB then interfacing SSIS package with a web service which launch the execution of those packages (which is much easier then the first option), you can use OLE DB driver for Oracle to connect to Oracle DB.

    3- If your requirements is just to have reports you can do it directly using SSRS using your Oracle DB as Data source.

    4- If you have to do the migration once, you can use also Microsoft SQL Server Migration Assistant for Oracle.
