Google "Google Sync was designed to allow access to Google Mail, Calendar and Contacts via the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync protocol. With the recent launch of CardDAV, Google now offers similar access via IMAP, CalDAV and CardDAV, making it possible to build a seamless sync experience using open protocols. Starting January 30, 2013, consumers won't be able to set up new devices using Google Sync; however, existing Google Sync connections will continue to function." Others are free to implement the open protocols.

It is more than likely they'll have a slower phase out period even for business customers but it'll go away there as well eventually.

Thats very unlikely being that Active Sync is used in the enterprise for Windows phones and PC's, Blackberry BES and also iPhones.

If they want to replace Exchange more in the enterprise they wont be getting rid of it.
