This May release from Microsoft see an update to Office (and its web components), Internet Explorer and some low level system components. Include the Internet Explorer and Office updates as part of your standard testing and deployment plan, however I would suggest waiting a little while before deploying MS15-044 as it updates two key system files; GDIPLUS.DLL and Win32K.sys.
I was hoping for a little respite from the ongoing onslaught of large patches from Microsoft, but with 13 patches to deploy this month, there is no let up in the continuing drum-beat of security patches and application updates.
Here is our monthly overview info-graphic on this month's Microsoft Patch Tuesday.
