Extract. Transform. Load.
This is the basic model behind Drupal 8's powerful Migrate module. Whether your data is in an older version of Drupal, WordPress, or any other database-backed application' we can pull it into a Drupal site using this module and approach.
It also works great with CSV files, RSS feeds, or any JSON or XML data source.
Migration isn't just for moving to Drupal or doing a big upgrade -- it''s also a powerful tool for ongoing integrations with other systems.
We've built several custom source plugins to extract from various APIs, and a bunch of custom process plugins to transform data into the structure needed in Drupal.

Another Drupal 8 site upgrade! In June of 2016 we were approached by Seattle’s Children’s Alliance for a Drupal 5 to Drupal 8 migration. Their main concern was that their Drupal 5 site modules were no longer being supported by the community, along with a cease in security updates. Also, they wanted to have a site that was mobile friendly with a fresh look and feel.
