It depends on what you want to analyse, but the first place I would recommend is looking at the inbuilt Analysis ToolPak in Excel - Microsoft Link here explaining how to enable and the inbuilt tools.

if your dealing with statistical data then look at the Excel functions on this Microsoft page

Pivot Tables are a really useful way of allow data to be analysed (search anywhere on the web for that information)

For some basic learning - use these Microsoft links:

Analyze your data instantly - Excel for Office 365 / Excel 2019 / Excel 2016 / Excel 2013

Analyze and format in Excel

And depending on your needs / budget - check out Power BI as an analysing tool
