There is no other / better solution.
If data needs to be backed up and restored at some point you need to use DM.

Yes, that is what I meant. Everything is sync'd wirelessly, except for 3rd party apps. That's why I love my company's policy, that we only support the Messaging data, not 3rd party apps. Most of what our helpdesk troubleshoots with BB's is the stupid 3rd party apps.
The original poster didn't specify or mention 3rd apps, that is why I questioned what exactly they will be loosing.

A security wipe will erase any/all user related data.
For example, you might have "BrickBreaker" game installed, a security wipe will not erase that application, but simply your highest score
On a similar note, Tasks, Memo's, Calendar, Messages are all applications on the BlackBerry device, a security wipe will clean up/clear out all the information that these applications display to the user.
For PIM items, everything will be synchronized over after your migrate to Exchange and reactivate these users,
A pre-population of email will also take place, but not every single email message from the mailbox will come over to the newly activated devices.
I hope this helps clarify what you will/will not be loosing during your migration process.
Is there something very specific your users would like to retain after a wipe, maybe we can collaboratively assist with that request
