i think the main reason is the opening sentence:
"currently this is one of the best open source business software on the planet with millions of users."
within wikipedia there needs to be some kind of validation for such statement. an opinion will not do. you will need an outsider paper - preferably an article in a respected magazine. wikipedia strives to be opinion-neutral, so perhaps you can help them validating the above statement?

hope this helps,
best regards, Ron

@ Alexandre:

This sentence says it all:   "Our Odoo page on Wikipedia has been deleted...."

your email address and signature indicate you are an employee of Odoo S.A. ... well ... don't you get it?
I am not a wikipedia activist nor expert but I'd just say it's an encyclopedia and the nature of an encyclopedia is not that commercial Companies right articles about themselves and their products.
so, I guess that was totally justified it got pulled. Strangely you seem to feel treated unfair. I also I am not 100% sure whether you should expect help from the community mailing list in this.
