In this chapter, we approach some significant concepts consistent with knowledge and cognitive processes that are essential for any kind of contemporary organization. Therefore, after citing a generic approach to knowledge management and its facilitating tools, along with a description of software agents and their categories, we indicate precious elements and details for the prerequisites while designing and implementing such intelligent solutions. As prerequisites, we deem organizational context, programming, and developing tools. We then discuss collaborative agent systems, known as agent societies, and present some appealing implementations of complex agent systems. Finally, we portray some of our thoughts regarding the perspective of employing smart agent technology in our everyday life.
