Hi Pdixit1977,

Most of the Activesync information are store in IIS logs. You can use logpraser or other IIS monitoring tool for checking the logs.

For realtime, Try EXMON from MS. This will show you real time users accessing your server.

For moving users from BB to Active sync, you can install the Active Sync and configure it.

You next question, what things you need to keep in mind. There is an article, which shows comparision between both

http://www.exchangeserverinfo.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=70:blackberry-vs-activesync-the-war-is-on-&catid=31:general&Itemid=55

Now it is on you to decide. Which suits better for your env. From my end, both are good.
