If this is not an option, take it slow. Make sure you have a suitable test environment in which to perform your Proof of Concept (POC) on. Install your software on that test environment and bring over the data using NFS or FTP. I don't know if you have a database or not, but if you do you'll have to re-create the database and also make sure that the versions of software you are using are compatible with whatever you are trying to integrate with.
