We have SAS programs that clean data files and being submitted automatically using a windows jobs by calling the SAS.exe /SASV9.CFG (timed batch processing e.g. every 2:00pm daily) . If we move to the SAS cloud version, will there be option to schedule and submit SAS prog coming from an sftp server?

What do you mean by "SAS cloud version"? Are you talking about a private cloud stored in your own data centre or using a public cloud provider? If this is in your own data centre then no doubt there will be tools available for scheduling. SAS has its own scheduling tool called LSF as well as operating system alternatives.

We are not sure yet if it will be a private cloud stored in our own data centre or using a public cloud provider, we are just looking for our options.

No I did not mean that the SAS programs are coming from an sftp server. Just to clarify, the files that the SAS program needs is coming from an sftp server (and yes SAS is not handling the movement of these files- download/ saving/ archiving ) .
We don't have an issue with the current process. We currently schedule the execution of the SAS program by using a Windows batch file (.bat) as described in my original post. All I need to know is, if the SAS server is not going to be on-premise anymore, what changes are needed to our current configuration or what are the options to schedule execution of a SAS base program?
