Regarding SaaS admin interfaces: RoR has a nice collection of nearly ready made admin interfaces: Category: Rails Admin Interfaces - The Ruby Toolbox . I use something similar for my tech stack. My recommendation is to try first with a copy of your production db, and if you deploy it to set up the admin interface in a separate app behind a firewall.
