Are there any? We use TS to run scheduled jobs and execute applications that we use for our DCs. Is there a better idea for this? Thanks!

Take the terminal server out of the equation and run the apps and scheduled tasks from the Server OS itself or use a workstation dedicated to the process. You could do both still in VM if you are currently doing VM for the terminal server.

powershell? Same thing.  You can run scripts.

Do you need a gui?  There's a list:
