Heroku is an excellent service to deploy Rails apps to. It allows me to focus on development without worrying about any of the infrastructure maintenance. At the same time, the heroku toolbelt allows you a lot of control to restart the app, look at logs, etc. The requirement to deploy using git also enforces some development discipline as well
Pentaho is a comprehensive open source Business Intelligence Suite that covers Reporting, Analytics and Data Integration aspect of Business Intelligence. It’s easy to set up and use out of the box. There also is a decent Google+ community which I use to get support from. There also is a community version of the Pentaho product which is the version I use.
