Instance Scan Sometimes a feature or product sneaks up and surprises you with the depth it provides. Instance Scan is one of those sleepers in Quebec release for me. If you check out our Live Coding Happy Hour session, you will see some of what I mean. The scanning engine provides tools to check for opportunities to improve the health of your instance. The earlier you can present those to the developers, the faster and easier it is to align to those organizational practices to help keep your instance running smoothly and maintainable.
