Your replication solution will depend on your replication requirements. Do you need data replicated in near-real time, or will you only need data updated every so often? If you need data replicated in real time, then you might wish to look at SQL Server's solution to link Oracle databases. (I'm not a SQL Server expert so I can't give you any guidance there). If the data needs to be replicated every so often, then you can use SQL Server's Data Transformation Services (DTS) to push data to Oracle through OLE DB.

Alternatively, you can connect Oracle directly to a SQL Server database, through ODBC, using an Oracle product called Heterogeneous Services.
