Location Intelligence and Enterprise Bandwidth

The Constellation Research website has an interesting article on the importance of location in enterprise software. The key insight is this:
If location was stored with objects, that data could then be used to filter information, just like how facets such as time and author are used today... In other words, location is an important data point that could be used to reduce the rapidly increasing amount of information that is being pushed into activity streams.
By leveraging the location aspect of business intelligence / enterprise information, we can refine our searches to the most relevant data, and reduce our use of enterprise bandwidth. So not only does location intelligence allow us to be more effective in targeting our activities, but also to be more efficient in our use of enterprise resources.
