Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS or S.S.M.S.) is a comprehensive integrated environment designed for managing SQL Server infrastructure.

It's a completely standalone product. It offers a graphical interface that facilitates the configuration, monitoring, and administration of SQL Server instances. Users can deploy, monitor, and upgrade data-tier components used by the applications, such as databases.

Additionally, SSMS also provides Transact-SQL, MDX, DMX, and XML language editors for editing and debugging scripts.
