Yes, there are open source solutions out there.
Yes, these are similar or even better than the commercial ones you pay subscription fees for.
Yes, the transition is possible and awesome.
And most importantly of all: you will have control over your own data. When it comes to the fruits of intellectual labor, nothing appears to me to be more important than that.
