At Morgan Stanley, Perl is used extensively to intensively manage the infrastructure, and in turn Perl is managed intesively. All Perl programs are run using one Perl, located on a global network drive. All modules, from CPAN and internal ones are accessible there as well. This makes programs easy to deploy and manage.
In addition to this, Perl programs are used to keep all machines checked and configured. Both of these efforts are traditonially available for the Unix side of the plant (all 9000 or so of them) but a project is now under way to bind Windows into the fold as well.
Broeren offers a look at what Morgan Stanley asks Perl to manage and how Perl is managed.
