As ever it depends on the project.

Personally I use Python for general scripting and as a
prototyping 
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.
