Got a bad business app? Get your data out.

This one is for everyone who has to use some...well, "legacy" is a polite word for it...business application because it has a bunch of important data stuck in it.

Alex Khizhnyak from Apatar walks you through the steps in getting rid of an evil business app in Dump your legacy CRM system for Salesforce.com using open source tools. If Salesforce.com isn't your favorite, I'm sure that it will give you ideas on how to convert your data for the CRM system that you do like.

Looks like the kind of thing that people are happy to take on as a weekend project because starting Monday morning you don't have that business app from hell to support any more. Have fun.
