Some of the things Opscode is working on:

* Improvements to the Search API (bringing back partial search results)
* Reporting primitives (like everything else in Chef, the API first!)
* No-Op mode
* Drastically improved installation and setup (both for the client and
the Chef Server)

You'll likely be able to build this sort of functionality with the
reporting primitives we're talking about.

We have all sorts of customers, ranging from small web startups to the
Fortune 500, and we love them all equally. :) The open source
community contains a huge diversity of folks as well.
