Erlang has enourmously strong foundation for build&deploy processes.
- hot code loading
- code replacement at runtime
- erl_boot_server(3)
- remote code loading
- platform independent .beam format (almost, native depends on  
architecture)
- release_handler(3)

Remeber, this is only foundation and geared towards application
domain of building reliable servers.

For other domains, different build&deploy strategies fit better:
