The analysis will be presented after the following steps.
The analysis will be presented after these steps.
The analysis will be presented after the following:

If you mean the analysis is the logical consequence of the following steps:

The analysis derives from the following steps.
The analysis follows from these steps.
The analysis is based on the following steps.
