Competitive WDS pricing plans for GTS

GTS, one of our big IBM internal clients use Elastic search instead of Discovery. Their key pain point is the pricing for WDS. With Elastic Search they pay $20 / month and get similar capability and results.  GTS wants to see a better pricing model than our current scheme. 

Work with GTS teams and come up with a pricing schema amenable for GTS.
