Look over Stata User Group meetings (http://www.stata.com/meeting/) --
almost every meeting, there is at least one report where people used
Stata as the backbone engine, and produced output for their client in
HTML, XML, Excel, Word (God forbid...), LaTeX -> pdf, interfaced to
SQL, Python, and what not. Some of those solutions would be quite
idiosyncratic, and others proprietary, but you should be able to find
a good range of ideas.

Welcome to the Stata world. In half a year, you would look back and
think "Wow, that SPSS stuff was so much pain" :))

We've done most of our work in SPSS for almost a decade, now, and have developed highly idiosyncratic ways of using macros and Python to create our primary products for our customers: banner books, daily partials, regressions and various modeling projects.
