complaining about a problem without posing a solution is called whining
-Theodore Roosevelt, President of the United States of America 1901-1909
Solution architecture is the description of a process which matches business value and goals with the IT technology that will deliver them.
Solution architecture is business-value focussed, rather than just IT solution driven. It combines an understanding of the business drivers and business objectives with the specialist technical knowledge of potential IT products and technologies that will deliver to those objectives.
