Does anyone know why the Work Management Service Application was removed from Sharepoint 2016? Something to do with an overall goal of hybrid-everything in Sharepoint 2016 (wrt Sharepoint Online)?

It was very useful for aggregating tasks on the users' mysites - although it is possible to roll one's own using search, I think this is a very strange move by MS


Microsoft first removed this feature in Office 365. This has now been adopted to SharePoint 2016 OnPrem.

Microsoft never gave us a reason for this decision. This Blog-Post has an overview and also an interesting discussion in the comments.
