Are you directly executing from Entperise Manager or scheduled as a job?
Have you check the DTS package log in this case, that is the first option to check why it is taking longer time. Satya SKJ

Alternatively, you can run dbcc commands to maintain and check the consistency of the db which you have migrated. Also you can run statistics update on the same.
Also check the service pack installation.
