As ever it depends on the project.
Personally I use Python for general scripting and as a
tool for the non GUI bits of projects and Delphi for GUI bits.
The final code is nearly always in Delphi.
Python servers are a possibility but the lack of speed means
bigger hardware so the Delphi approach usually wins there too.
But if your user base is not huge and you have powerful servers
available and development times are the critical factor then
yes Python can produce industry strength apps.
