Let me see if I have this right: robotic process automation means automating ordinary desktop software by simulating cursor and keyboard inputs?

That's correct. I had to do some research into the market at one point. From my brief exposure, it's really just "macros" and "macro recorders" of old, being re-sold under the new enterprise buzzword of "RPA".

Other big leaders in the space are Automation Anywhere, UiPath, and BluePrism.
