Python is becoming increasingly popular as an enterprise production programming language, with ThoughtWorks consultant Zhamak Dehghani noting a "perfect storm of a few technologies coming together and giving rise to Python again, and trying to get it in more enterprise environments."

Dehghani says the maturation of Python 3, microservices, and other new architectural strategies, and artificial intelligence are converging so enterprises can use Python across the development lifecycle. Python 3, for example, sought to address performance and concurrency issues while also easing learning and usage. ThoughtWorks' Neal Ford cites Python's utilitarianism and use in "solving bigger kinds of problems" as its primary advantages.

The Python Software Foundation's board of directors points to the language's versatility, and its use in various domains, including system operations, Web development, deployment, and scientific modeling. The board also notes Python should expand its mobile platform presence, and C-Python could perform better on multiple cores for parallel processes.
