We shipped over a Hyper-V server and several virtual machines to create a SharePoint platform in which we were able to effectively import their databases, prune them, trim audit logs, find large unused media files, and purge bits of code from third-party experiments.

We then set up a production 2010 SharePoint farm and a development farm, and did a series of test migrations until we were satisfied that the database was clean enough to proceed with a production cut over. We then set up a scripted synchronization of data between the 2003 source and the 2010 farm, and turned our attention to branding. Branding went through many revisions. The result of all this migration and revising was a much more robust, stable, and better performing platform, and additionally the user interface was enhanced with tabs and several new navigational widgets that made it easier for staff to locate documents and information required to do their job.
