Thanks! Ultimately though, you have libraries to thank, because they are the
ones who sponsor the development and hire the developers to work on and
implement Koha ... so give yourselves a round of applause ;-)

The data migration process is often the most challenging part of implementing
Koha, or any ILS for that matter. If you're not able to do it yourself,
and none of the free resources are helpful, you may want to consider
contacting one of the companies that support Koha:
All of them have experience not only in developing Koha, but also in
implementation (data migration, etc.). Depending on the company, they
also can provide you with software maintenance (for applying bug fixes,
and updates), as well as customization services.
Hope that helps.
