I've also used it for reporting: its excellent ability to interface to libraries means you can drive Excel (or most things .Net) from Python. I even used it to link to Bloomberg once, creating a framework to get the data to test some finanical models.
In my previous life in financials, Python was being used due to the ease of embedding it in other systems, and presenting a simple Python 'macro' language to users. Can't say much more I'm afraid...
It was also used on the web side internally.
