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.

similar to the situation, mike sorentio, the solution refers to a man or men that isn't just the man or the answer he is the total package, the solution. Not only is said person or persons well endowed, have perfect hair and a craving for the richest things in life (i.e. grading papers, pleasuring women, and fighting crime) he also is a man of much wealth fortune and insight (usually not a women)
Mike Sorentio may be the Situation, but Chuck Norris is the solution.

Pat Hayes' perfect parted hair is nothing short of solution to life's baldness.
