[erlang-questions] OT: Programming Language Selection as a Business Strategy

There are quite a few pages and blog entries around by people advocating
one language or another for various reasons. What I'm wondering is: Are
there any academic articles evaluating the selection of a programming
language as part of business strategy? I've managed to find a few papers
about Information Systems, etc and business strategy including one
journal almost devoted entirely to the subject, but am unable to find
anything specific to language selection. This seems strange as the US
DoD developed Ada and Ericsson developed Erlang in response in part to
business needs. If anyone knows of any good references please send them
my way.

Thanks,

Jeff.
