    To add some additional information. I have found that some organizations view Microsoft Updates as having a higher risk level for impact than application deployments. This causes them, right or wrong, to make decisions to reduce the duration and occurrence for maintenance windows (MWs). You end up with situations where MWs may be happening only weekly or even monthly. Because application deployments get lumped into the "All Deployments" MW bucket getting the apps to the users in a timely manner can be problematic. Solutions inevitably revolve around ignoring MWs which increases risk that something bad could happen during business hours. An Application Maintenance Window allows for separation from these two very different activities.
