Jira is a great centralized tool for just about everything, from local team management to keeping track of products and work logs. It is easy to implement and navigate, and it is stable and scalable.

Microsoft Azure DevOps is a “one-stop-solution for DevOps.” Their tech support is very good, both from Microsoft and on the cloud side. The interface could be a little more user-friendly, though.

Jira integrates well with third-party tools such as Salesforce, Bitbucket, and Slack. On the other hand, I found that Azure has not yet advanced to the performance level of its major competitors and is missing integration with some important technologies.

One thing Jira is missing is the ability to allow for layered admin rights.

I would prefer if Azure had better integration with Office 365. It is also lacking security features or the ability to integrate with other security tools.


Jira is both more user-friendly and integrates better with third-party tools than Azure, but I prefer the flexibility and structure of Azure DevOps

Had made a comparison some time back, Hope this will clarify which fits the requirement.

1 It is a tool provided by Microsoft to implement the DevOps lifecycle in business. It is a tool that provides project management for software development.
2 It provides a platform for modern services to collaborate better for software development. It provides an Agile way of software development and collaborates with teams to develop.
3 Azure DevOps does not have search capabilities like Jira. Jira provides advanced search capabilities for issues in code.
4 Traceability in the software development lifecycle is possible from one start to another way. Traceability is not direct in this tool and does not provide visibility on which group is completed.
5 It can easily integrate with Git for better versioning of code. It is integrated with BitBucket for the versioning of code.
6 It provides a dashboard in which projects can be managed. It provides Kanban and Scrum boards.
7 It does not have built-in roadmaps to track progress. It has built-in roadmaps to track progress.
8 It does not have such capability. It has Comprehensive agile reporting which makes teams accessible to dozens of reports.
9 Azure DevOps is an enterprise-ready tool. Jira is an enterprise-ready Agile tool.

What supports most business success entirely, sustainably? The best differentiated thus module-wise dedicated but integrated model consisting out of business process aids, configurable. 

This is Azure with O365, Power-Apps, SharePoint, etc. BUT no chance, no benefit without effort scaled according to business dimensions, targets, profit.
