Calendar/Contacts Desktop Access

I am a Blackberry newbie and currently converting from a Treo to Blackberry Storm.  When using the Treo, the Palm software that I used was the Palm Desktop which allowed me to access my contacts and calendar on both my Treo and on my desktop.  On my desktop, I selected the Palm Desktop to see all of my appointments and contacts.  How can I do this with the Blackberry?  With Blackberry desktop?  I have heard that I may need to sync with Outlook (which I do not have installed).  Is that my only option?
