Analyzing is a craftsmanship. It's not just about observing the numbers and seeing what ways teh graphs are moving. Everything before and after that is at least as important. Flawless telemetry implementation, responsible aggregation and understanding of the metrics are necessary to assure the accuracy of the data and to be able to use it for calculations.
Subsequently analysing goes beyond reading the numbers. The questions that are invoked by the data or by you can seldomly be answered with standard graphs. Analysis is also about insight into what metrics are important, being able to benchmark, making connections and being able to zoom in on problems as well as communicating with decisionmakers.
The importance of data and analysis in a succesful development proces is undeniable. Wether it's about learning from mistakes, optimizing, comparing or involving stakeholders: data can play a great many roles.
