Reuse

Reuse, in application development, means reusing application components in other applications. An example would be reusing an existing application framework (the software that supports the app) in a brand new application. App developers can use the same framework without changing the source code.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Reuse

SMBs in the tech sector can reuse application components in other applications to reduce the costs associated with application development. Reuse can also save an application's development time because these companies don't have to source or develop new components from scratch.
