From RIMs web site:

"BlackBerry Handheld Manager is a small COM service agent that can be deployed to all workstations in the environment. It brokers the communication between the Serial or USB port and the connected BlackBerry Wireless Handheld™. This COM service agent is included in both the BlackBerry Desktop Manager and the stand-alone MSI-based installation."

Desktop Manager, a different product, allows you to configure the BlackBerry itself, and control the Intellisync options. If you have BES 4.0 and handheld OS 4.0 you do not need Desktop Manager, as all syncing is wireless. Otherwise, you will most likely need to install and use Desktop Manager.
