There is an upgrade path from Drupal 7 to Backdrop CMS. An upgrade involves making changes to your existing database to make it work with Backdrop as opposed to the migration option which involves migrating your content into a completely new Backdrop site. In this discussion, we can address both options, but our focus will likely be on the upgrade path. 

If you have already done an upgrade, please drop in and tell us about your experience. How did it go? What can we do to make the experience better?

There are some great resources available on upgrading to Backdrop. This is your change to ask questions and share your experiences.
