Blackberry w/ Office 365? Easy or hassle? BES needed? Is it as simple as activesync?

Last Modified: 2016-02-08
We are thinking of migrating from on-premises Exchange 2007 to Office 365.

The president of our company hates his iphone 6s PLUS and wants to know if he could get a blackberry if we approve the Office 365 project.

Will a blackberry work out-of-the box without needing a blackberry enterprise server or additional complication?

Is having one blackberry user add a giant complication or not a big deal?
