This term became popular in the business world because it was used to describe some products or services that when bundled together would lead to a complete solution. For example, Microsoft Office isn't just a suite of applications, it's a total office solution.

The term, like most management buzzwords has lost any meaning it originally had. People no longer sell products or services any more, they're all selling solutions.

With the golden age of the 'give us your money and don't ask questions' Internet boom of the late 90s this word grew to become e-solutions. An e-solution is something to do with the Internet. No-one is really sure what it does but it makes web pages or something and so is a must-have.
