Today via the Office 365 Blog, http://blogs.office.com/b/microsoft_office_365_blog/archive/2012/01/30/update-on-blackberry-business-cloud-services-for-microsoft-office-365.aspx, Microsoft announces the full availability of the BlackBerry Business Cloud Services! This is a big step to allow companies that still heavily rely on BlackBerry devices used by end-users a way to move to Office 365.
Another big announcement came from the great guys at the Exchange Team Blog, http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2012/01/30/pst-time-to-walk-the-plank.aspx, the release of the PST Capture. This is a tool that will help administrators locate PST files in their environment and migrate the date to an on-premises Exchange 2010 server or Exchange Online. I see this helping out Office 365 Exchange Online by enabling a company to migrate to Office 365 for email quickly doing an export of the primary mailbox to a PST and then only migrating the most recent email during the migration and the importing the PST file to either the primary mailbox or much better, the Exchange Online Archive. I plan to test this new tool out and will be blogging about the experience.
