Moving to Office365

Greetings,

 

We are considering moving email to Office365.  Currently we have a BES Enterprise server, BlackBerry UDS server and BlackBerry CS server.  A couple questions have come up and I can't find any definative answers (not even from the tech support I spoke to).

We have an in-house Lync server and Blackberry Collaboration Service server (it is on a separate server from our BlackBerry server).  Will these still work when we move to Office365? Exchange is not listed as a requirement to install the Collaboration Service and I do not recall and Exchange specific configuration during the setup.

 

One of our IT guys swears that a telco vendor told him a Blackberry Device Service (BDS) server can connect our existing BB devices to email using Active Sync. I cant corroborate this anywhere.  Is he just wrong?

 

Thank you!

Re: Moving to Office365

You would need BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft Office 365. Here is the link to documentation

If you are planning to use BlackBerry 10 devices you would need a BlackBerry Device Server
