In my company's django project, we have all of our apps in an "apps" directory. The pony-get-app function always returns apps rather than "integration" or what-have-you. This was my solution for it.

;; should probably be customization field?
(setq pony-app-dir-prefix "apps")

(defun pony-get-app ()
  "Return the name of the current app, or nil if no app
found. Corrects for excluded prefix."
  (let* ((root (pony-project-root))
     (excluded-prefix (if (nil-blank-string pony-app-dir-prefix)
                  (concat root pony-app-dir-prefix "/")
         (re (concat "^" (regexp-quote excluded-prefix) "\\([A-Za-z_]+\\)/"))
         (path (or buffer-file-name (expand-file-name default-directory))))
    (when (string-match re path)
      (match-string 1 path)))))

Most likely to turn this into a .dir-locals setting...
At which point you'd set it at the directory above all your company's Django source & this would work for your case IIUC

This would work for my usecase. I'm just using the hacked up version I pasted above, but that will be better. :)
