Subject: Re: [CODE4LIB] Online statistics gathering tool
SUMA is about 80% of the way to what you describe. I don't know if it integrates with external data systems, but you can set up your own initiatives, it's web based, it's open source, and I'm pretty sure it's built on some PHP platform or another. If I recall there are also some clever one-click type of deployment packages available.
Full disclosure: Jason Casden works upstairs from me and is The Man.
