Azure DevOps provides unlimited private Git hosting, cloud build for continuous integration, agile planning, and release management for continuous delivery to the cloud and on-premises. Includes broad IDE support. On the other hand, Jenkins is detailed as "An extendable open source continuous integration server". In a nutshell Jenkins CI is the leading open-source continuous integration server. Built with Java, it provides over 300 plugins to support building and testing virtually any project.
Azure DevOps and Jenkins are primarily classified as "Project Management" and "Continuous Integration" tools respectively.
Some of the features offered by Azure DevOps are:
