First of all, there's a common misconception amongst a lot of people that BlackBerries require BES, they do not, BlackBerries can hook directly into ActiveSync just like other smartphones without a BES.
I believe the Blackberry BIS service only supports Outlook Web Access (Not true ActiveSync), there are third party apps for ActiveSync but from my research they are a bit cumbersome to use.
Why people want to continue going down the BES route is a mystery

- It was a genuine computer bug

- They are trying to cover up because someone from the top ordered them to do so
