We moved Perl into the Windows based Financial Company I work for. Simply by using it to automate tasks. We have 15k machines to manage and all of the backend processing on the accounts, the anti-virus and the package distribution slowly became automated, via perl. That was how we got Perl into the company. It wasn't even a conscious effort to get Perl in. When comparing it to other tools Perl was more efficient and allowed us a fast turn around time, and as for cost, it never really showed up on the budget outside of our man hours and the projects we used it for. In any environment Perl can be used in my opinion to efficiently process large volumes of data and automate the response to that data or organise the reports so support staff can respond more quickly. And in any type of shop there are jobs that are being doing daily, weekly, monthly that you can set perl up to do for the company so that it frees up those man hours to focus on the core value of the business. And any manager will appreciate that.
