What are our options?

Thank you in advance.

I've done this successfully many times in the past.

I've always used the SQL Server Migration Assistant for Oracle (available for free from MS):

If your database is mostly just tables without a whole bunch of PL/SQL it works very well.

It will make an attempt to translate PL/SQL to T-SQL but it will spit out lots of warnings and you'll have to manually check your code.

There may be other third party options as well for a cost (but SSMA has worked for me so I haven't looked deeply into it).
