Exchange consulting question

Hello Experts,

I have a request from 2 clients:

Company A purchased a company called Company B. Currently both run on their own email systems.  
Company A on Exchange, and Company B on Google Apps. At this point neither side wants to migrate to the other platform.

The IT director from Company A wanted to know if there is a product that would allow both to work together. Currently neither can see each other’s calendar, and address books don’t update each other, etc.

Company B had a very large integration into Google Apps and migration would take a lot of effort.

Have any of you heard of a solution that would integrate the two mail systems and let them work seamlessly together?

The only way to have something in the cloud work together with Exchange is Exchange in hybrid configuration combined with Office365. I have not heard of a similar solution yet (with Google Apps or any other cloud service).
It's only logical though as Exchange and Office365 basically "talk the same language".

The simple answer is no. In order for users to share calendar and free/busy info you need to have a forest trust, Federation or a hybrid model in place (O365) to allow this type of data to be visible between forests.
