You better not try to sell Erlang, or any language to managers.
You should try selling a reliable, robust, fault-tolerant, code verified system.
You will do code upgrades without stopping the system.
You can offer proofs the system is correct.
They don't want Erlang. They don't care about Erlang.
You will use Erlang to build the system they want.
The advantages of language X,Y or Z are the stuff programmers care about.
Managers care about different things like costs, down-time, reliability.
Focus on that.
My apologies if I sound a little bit grumpy.
