I would like to compile a list of advantages of running a BES over active synch
 
These may not all be true but
End to end encryption
Ablilty to wipe, lock, send service books
Ability to know at once whether a device has sent, received, is in coverage, has a SIM, etc
Ability to push software to device
Ability to use our Internet connection for Browsing(i would think that is a huge savings to the carriers)
Ability to hit our INtranet and Shared drives without a VPN
Certain reporting features on a global basis
No need to buy any other 3rd party software to do the above

I know that if you say "you can see all devices at once" you could get hit with "single point of failure".

Any others i am not thinking of?

Thanks.

Moved to a more appropriate location.

Less data usage than EAS devices
OTA device software upgrades
Push applications/lock down software configs
on enterprise BES there are over 500 IT policies
longer battery life than most EAS devices
easier to trouble shoot IMO
HA for free with BES 5 (no single point of failure)

In addition to what's been mentioned already...

BlackBerry Collaboration Services for Enterprise IM.
Wireless Backup of device data and personalization settings.
Wireless Sync of To-Do (Tasks) and Memos.
MVS for integration into corporate VoIP network.

One advantage we have found is that with a widely distributed base of users (some are 300-400 miles apart) it gives a centralized way of administering devices. Imagine having to physically go to the desktop of hundreds of users...it wouldn't be pretty :)....and you can avoid as much as possible the desktop environment and all the baggage that is associated with that.

Thanks to all- it is a question that is posed to me and i need to have "talking points". I would think that the carriers are happy with the encyrption and compression as it makes their networks more efficient but who knows- maybe they are giving away data instead of rewarding efficiencey as we provide by sending BES traffic through our T-3. I have I Phone and Android working now so stakes are higher.

Try investigating Good for your iPhone and Android devices. Works similar to BES and provides a separately encrypted container for corporate data only on the device.

Is there anything out there that allows proxy connections to the intranet like BES does? I ask because we have been thinking about enabling iPhone but we use the intranet applications quite a bit through our Blackberries.
