Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio is the front-end to SQL Server, that allows you to query databases, manage your vaults and run Maintenance Plans. The Maintenance Plans are of great importance, as they can increase performance and back-up your database(s).
SQL Management Studio (SSMS) ships with SQL Standard, which is what is in included with SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional, but not with SQL Express, which is included with PDM Standard.
SSMS can be installed for SQL Express though. The installation files are located with the SOLIDWORKS Installation media, in a folder called sqlmngmnt. SSMS can also be downloaded from Microsoft.
