Overcome the Risks and Challenges of Manual Migrations

Considering I was migrating from SharePoint 2003 to SharePoint 2010, I can only imagine what kind of problems I would have run into if I had had to do this manually, especially with the additional requirement of pulling all data through SharePoint 2007. All problems I did have were answered by a great support group in a very timely manner.
