I suspect there is a lot of it sitting in the background. In my role looking
after Redhat Linux systems for a govt agency we have a lot of it in the form
of utility scripts around system administration. Esp for backup related

I also tend to use it a lot for quick and dirty adhoc scripts for munging
data - because i'm more comfortable with it than shell scripting and its
easier than writing stuff in java. Although I have been using python and
groovy a bit recently..
