migrate from hp-ux to linux

I have a new assignment where I would need to migrate all apps from HP-UX to Linux. Can someone give me a project outline and some guidance on how to proceed with this?

WOW! You don't have an easy task. What kind of applications? What is your role in the migration? System administrator? Software programmer? Project Manager?

Unix transition manager would be my role. I guess it would entail all the above.
