How to organize a team creating ONE app with two distinct users groups

The product will target two completely different groups of users, with different deadlines. Should we be separate teams or one team? What other applications are there that does something similar and how are they managed?

I am a software developer that is about to start working on a project. Our manager wants to create one team of developers and analysts and have them work on the application. And based on the priority and deadline, the developers and analysts will focus on the specific group of user. His main goal is to avoid redundancy and he thinks this will be more efficient. While I don't disagree with this approach, I'm sure other teams have had to deal with this type of issue and want to know how they managed it.
