SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) Versions

Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS or S.S.M.S.) is the integrated environment for managing your SQL Server infrastructure. SQL Server Management Studio presents a graphical interface for configuring, monitoring, and administering instances of SQL Server. It also allows you to deploy, monitor, and upgrade the data-tier components used by your applications, such as databases. SQL Server Management Studio also provides Transact-SQL, MDX, DMX, and XML language editors for editing and debugging scripts.

Management Studio is a completely standalone product, not tied to any specific version or edition of SQL Server, and no longer requires licensing of any kind.
