I don't think, that allegro can export to altium designer. altium designer however claims to import allegro *.pcb files. Check the import wizard. P.S.: I previously checked the Cadstar import feature of altium, which basically worked.
It depends very much on the level of design complexity. In case of a complex design you need an advanced constraint manager and always Mentor SI Hyperlynx supports Cadence designs too. If you are doing a very basic design then any other tool like altium, Pads will also be good. They are economical comparatively and capable of doing most designs.
