Ruby on Rails : RoR for short is a fast growing technology. Its potential is awesome. Not just for the developer but also fr the customer. Here is Why.

Fast Turn around times through Model View Controller architecture.

Yii is a high-performance PHP framework best for developing Web 2.0 applications.

Why use Zend Framework?

### Modular

Building blocks that can be used piece by piece with other applications or frameworks

### Extensible

Easy to adapt the framework to your needs

### High Performing

Engineered with performance tuning in mind

### Secure

All the cryptographic and secure coding tools you need to do things right

### Community

A vibrant and active contributor and user base for getting help and giving back

### Enterprise Ready

A proven history of success running business critical and high-usage applications

Commonly speaking, what this means is lesser bugs and a standard way for doing things.

At a time when “time to market” has massive implications , Ruby on rails, Zend Framework and Yii are definitely boons for those who want to reduce time take to develop applications. Especially so if you application is data oriented. They lend themselves to be open and extensible and so technologies such as AJAX and FLEX and supported. AJAX and FLEX have grown to be a need especially if you want your site to be eye catching.
Since the software is very standardized, It is a good idea as it make it easy for one developer to take over where the other left it. This make good business sense as it mitigates risk of human labour.

Its not without its drawbacks. Its slightly slower than some languages in the market today, but if you consider the big picture (viz. What you loose vs what you gain ) . The loss is insignificant.
